Reinstall Appliance (Hardware Appliance Only)

Hardware appliance users have the option to reinstall the software system to various update levels or even factory defaults (also available from the appliance console). From this section, choose the drop-down selection based on the desired reinstall level. Only available reversion points will be enabled, in bold black lettering, for selection. Greyed lettering indicates that the previous reversion point is unavailable.

Choosing “Factory Defaults” will revert everything back to the appliance default as it was shipped. Backups, applied updates, etc. are all removed. Choosing “Base Version” just installs the OS as it was when it was first shipped (versions of software and update level, etc.), but backups and updates remain available.
