Is there a way to schedule an upgrade of a ZD in advance, ex. cron job?

I'd like to schedule an after-hours upgrade in there a way to do that?

not from within a ZD as far as I am aware. Maybe if you have Flexmaster but not 100% sure if that can be scheduled.

Yes, there is a ZD CLI 'fw_upgrade' command, that you can issue at the time you choose to run it with CRON or similar.

I've performed a midnight TFTP upgrade for example with these commands, but didn't use any scripting tool.

ruckus(debug)# fw_upgrade
