How to check if the reboot has taken place?

All of the reboot events will be recorded in Monitoring > Logs > Device Reboot. The prefix of CommandKey describes the reboot type:

Troubleshooting

If the reboot did not happen:
1. Check the server time.The scheduled time in the reboot profile should base on the ACS server time instead of your computer's system time.

2. Make sure Periodic Inform is enabled on CPE. The reboot will be triggered when the CPE sends an inform to the ACS server, so please make sure you have select "Enable" for Periodic Inform Settings on System Maintenance >> TR-069 setting of CPE WebUI.
