Is it possible to Clear EVA Event Logs?

I have an EVA 8400 that we're prepping to re-sell, and we're concerned about the entire history of errors and events on the HSV450s, we'd rather not ship them with a long littany of events stored in each, but i've been searching all day and have not been able to find a way to clear them out.  Is there a procedure for this?  A full-blown factory reset is fine too, if that's the only option.

Thanks!

Hello Mike,

have you tried uninitialization?

I have done that, but I have not re-initialized after to see if the logs are clear.  When they sit in an uninitialized state, you can still view the logs which are full of errors/messages from when it was last initialized.  I think i read somewhere that EVA controllers typically keep a record of the last 2000 events and when something new happens, it drops off the 2000th item and writes a new one, something like that.
