Resetting DNS/DHCP Servers will result in a service outage. This service outage will last until you have deployed services to the replacement system. Only reset DNS/DHCP Server services if you are replacing the DNS/DHCP Server with a new appliance of a different type and/or reconfiguring the IPv4 or IPv6 addresses of the Services interface on the appliance. BlueCat recommends that you schedule a maintenance window before performing a reset of DNS/DHCP Server services.
