Reset EVA controller NVRAM

Hi all,

is there a way to reset the HSV controller NVRAM, or to reset it to factory default. I can't use CMD view EVA 6.0.2 any more !!

Thx

Re: Reset EVA controller NVRAM

What's the exact problem you have?

Have you updated the firmware on the EVA?

Current Command View version is 9.2 and it works with all currently supported firmwares.

Hi,

I tried CMDV 9.1 before buying it, and now i need to go back to manage my EVA like before. The probleme is with my 6.0.2 i can't see my controller.

This is a known issue. If you use Command View 9.x you cannot go back to CV 6.x. You'll not see the controllers on Command View.

Basically CV 6.x is currently not supported and you cannot downgrade to it.

You should get a license and use CV 9.2.1.

In order to go back you need to "destroy" the current setup including data - called "uninitialize".

Hope this helps!

Re: Reset EVA controller NVRAM

how can you say that, talking about destroying data !

This is not a solution or a very bad joke or an idea.

Thank you anyway

Re: Reset EVA controller NVRAM

As far as I know - it won't even work. The problem is that the contents of the controller module's NVRAM have been changed, as you wrote already wrote. An UNINITIALIZE will not reverse that.

As said, this is the better advise:

You should get a license and use CV 9.2.1.

Hope this helps!

Re: Reset EVA controller NVRAM

We plan and it is mandatory to go 9.2 i know that but we can't do that for now.

So i have 2 choices :

- get new controllers
- find a way to "clear NVARM"

IMHO both choices will not help.

Hope this helps!
