Warning: Only perform the steps in this section if directed to do so by a Technical Support technician.
Before You Restore: A system restore will erase all data and restore the DCE hardware server to its factory default settings. Please make sure you have a copy of all installed license keys and network settings prior to restore.
Download the restore.iso file to create a bootableUSBkey, or contact Technical Support for assistance.
For a USB Key, follow the instructions provided in Creating a bootable USB Key (Windows or Linux machine) for DCE
Place the USB key in the USB port of your DCE appliance.
When the appliance restarts the system restore process begins automatically. This process takes approximately 10 minutes for the 1U DCE Basic, 15 minutes for 1U DCE Standard or 25 minutes for 2U DCE Enterprise.
When the restore is complete, you will be prompted to remove the USB key and hit enter to reboot the server.
Note: If the system boots into the existing DCE version, reboot the server and access the BIOS settings. Adjust the boot sequence to boot from USB first.
Once DCE has restarted, you may configure the DCE network settings.
