Remote Reboot

Because the CMA software could only best be described as Flaky at best, we are looking for an alternative way to reboot our DL3s remotely. We often have the case of a fixture not recognising all the cards on power up and need to do a CMA reboot to get it talking properly (usually USB INIT ERROR). Problem is you have to sit and wait for the CMA to timeout, rediscover, timeout again and finally let you at the fixture controls. A 'fun' part of the auto discovery and DHCP addressing that's the only option.

So what we'd like is the ability to reboot from a third party control. Unfortunately remote access via windows CMD is locked out on the DL3 OS.
Is there any other option here? Or do we need to turn to hacker land to see if we can come up with something on our own?
