We just purchased our first sets of Nutanix hardware, and I’d like to power up and play with them a bit before our initial configuration. So I am looking for the procedure to factory reset 8150-G9’s and 8170-G9’s

 

-thanks, Cliff

Hi there Cliff,

Resetting typically takes the basis of a process called ‘Foundation’ where you can reimage them, or re-use their existing state if they’ve arrived with OS etc.

Have a dig here, and get yourself a copy of Foundation downloaded from the Nutanix portal :)

 

Cheers,

Kim
