Factory Reset/Wipe

How do I Factory Reset/Wipe an array? Seems that Array --resetup doesnt really clean it up. We are in process of learning and want to run through a couple of setups from scratch

Hope this information helps.

That response is not helpful Daniel_monkey. The Support page for nimbles in HPE is a dead loop. I have tried multiple links when searching Nimble and all have lead to the notice "this product is no longer supported"

But I did find the following which should answer the question and provide additional reference material. 

Short answer is: array --resetup

I found the info in a document at the following on Page 11.

Indeed - this thread was written >3 years ago, before Nimble was acquired. Hence the link is dead. Thankfully @mamatadesaiNim provided the correct link.

If you need to reset or reinitialise a Nimble array, you MUST speak with Nimble Support for this to happen. You can always email too.
