Re: Simplivity Factory Reset takes a long time

@JHP1  Can you let me know the method of factory reset. Is it performed by network or via USB?

2 hours is not an overly long time if for instance you are attempting to factory reset over a WAN.It is allways preferable to use a  bootable physical usb with with the deploy installer for resets to avoid overly long reboot times.

Hi there,

Depending on how you are performing the factory reset.

Recommended method will be, please have the image in the physical USB and connect to the rear of the node. As per the notification the process is almost completed and we have to wait.

We performed a factory reset via network using iLO.  We haven't tried yet USB method.

What would you recommend?.

Thanks,

I would recomend to use the physical USB for doing reset as reset using n/w will consume lot of time.

If it's taking very long time using iLO, please try USB and connect the drive at rear of the node.

using the physical usb would not take more than 30 mins in ideal cases
