Performing a ZFSSA factory reset

A Factory reset of a ZFS Storage Array will reset the appliance configuration back to factory settings of the current software version, and reboot the appliance.

All configuration changes will be lost, and the appliance will need to go through initial configuration again, as when it was first installed.

NOTE: User data on the storage pool (including projects and shares) will not be affected - however the pool will need to be imported as part of the initial setup process.

To perform a factory reset:

MethodAction
BUI Click the FACTORY RESET button on the Maintenance > System screen, and click OK

CLI Enter the maintenance system context, then issue the factoryreset command, respond Y to confirm.
zfssa1:> maintenance system
zfssa1:maintenance system> factoryreset
GRUB Add -c to the GRUB menu on the line beginning with kernel.

Note: Factory reset of a single controller while configured into a cluster is not supported. The controller must be unclustered first.
