NVIDIA UFM Enterprise Appliance Software User Manual v1.7.0

This section provides a comprehensive guide on resetting UFM to its original factory settings.

Warning

WARNING!!! this operation will remove all user data and configuration and will restore UFM to its factory defaults.

Warning

The UFM Factory-Reset will exclusively revert UFM to its original factory settings, leaving HA configurations unaffected. To remove HA, it is essential to execute ufm_ha_cluster cleanup before initiating the factory reset.

To reset UFM to its factory defaults when using UFM on a Docker container, follow these steps.

  1. Ensure that UFM is not up and running. If UFM is running, stop it.
    For Stand-alone (SA) installations:

    Copy
    Copied!
                

    systemctl stop ufm-enterprise # validate that ufm is not running systemctl status ufm-enterprise

    For High-Availability setups (perform the following on the master node only):

    Copy
    Copied!
                

    ufm_ha_cluster stop # validate that ufm is not running ufm_ha_cluster status

  2. Run mellanox/ufm-enterprise Docker Container with the following flags:
