All Mediatrix Units

v. 43.0.1125


1 Factory Reset

The Factory reset reverts the Mediatrix unit back to its default factory settings.

It deletes the persistent configuration parameters of the unit, including:

  • User files stored in the File service
  • Certificates, except for factory installed ones
  • Log files of the File service

Note

Licences are not deleted when a factory reset is performed.

A Factory Reset can be triggered either:


1.1 Performing a Factory Reset Directly on the Unit

Context

The Factory reset alters any persistent configuration data of the Mediatrix unit.

Steps

  1. Insert a small, unbent paper clip into the hole of the Reset/Default button, located at the rear of the Mediatrix unit.
  2. While pressing the Reset/Default button, restart the unit.

    Note

    Do not release the Reset/Default button before the LEDs stop blinking and are steadily ON. This can take up to 30 seconds.

  3. Release the paper clip.

Result

All configuration parameters are reset to their default value. The unit can then be contacted via its WAN interface DHCP-provided IP address (ETH1 for most platforms), or via its LAN interface default IP address 192.168.0.10 (ETH2 for most platforms).

1.2 Performing a Factory Reset Using the DGW Web Interface
