Remove all network configurations and reset factory settings.

Stop DHCP service before running the reset factory-default command

You must stop DHCP service BEFORE running the reset factory-default command. Resetting factory defaults prior to stopping DHCP service can result in a corrupted DHCP configuration, which could prevent DHCP service from restarting. BlueCat strongly recommends scheduling a maintenance window during non-peak times in order to minimize the effects of this interruption. For more information, refer to Start/Stop/Restart DHCP Service.

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.

To reset network configurations to factory defaults:

  1. Log in to the Address Manager Administration Console as the administrator (by default, username: admin, password: admin).
  2. From Main Session mode, type configure network and press ENTER.
  3. Type reset factory-default and press ENTER.
    The Administration Console prompts you that all default gateways and static routes will be removed.
  4. At the prompt, type <Y|y> and press ENTER.
Network settings are reset to factory defaults.
