8.2.0

Remove all IP addresses and interface configurations for specific physical interfaces (eth0, eth1, and eth2) and reset factory settings.

You must remove DNS/DHCP Servers from Address Manager control prior to running the reset factory-default command.
DANGER
  • Run the reset factory-default command with extreme caution. Running this command will delete ALL IPv4 and IPv6 addresses and VLAN interfaces and bonding interfaces configured on the selected interface and restore factory defaults. This action is irreversible.
  • On Address Manager, running the reset factory-default command on eth0 will delete bond0 and restore the default factory IP (192.168.1.1).
  • On DNS/DHCP Server, running the reset factory-default command on eth0 will remove all VLAN interfaces and bonding interfaces configured on the interface and restore the default factory IP (192.168.1.1) as the Primary Service IP.
  • Dedicated Management must be disabled prior to running the reset factory-default command on eth2.
Available interfaces on Address Manager and DNS/DHCP Server are:
  • Address Manager—eth0, eth1 (network redundancy; hardware appliances only)
  • DNS/DHCP Server—eth0, eth1 (xHA Backbone), eth2 (Dedicated Management), eth3 (hardware appliances only), bond0*, vlan-interface** (IPv4 address only)

    *Only available once a bonding interface has been created (port bonding on hardware appliances only).

    **Only available when VLAN interfaces have been configured.
