Reset-HcsFactoryDefault

Reset-HcsFactoryDefault

Resets one or both controllers to a factory default state.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Reset-HcsFactoryDefault [[-Format] <String> {Quick | Full} ] [[-Scope] <ClusterScope> {Cluster | Controller} ] [-Force] [ <CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

The Reset-HcsFactoryDefault cmdlet resets one or both controllers to a factory default state. If you reset both controllers, you lose all data, metadata, and controller settings. The controllers revert to the operating system that the factory installed.

If you use Reset-HcsFactoryDefault to reset only one controller, that controller gets the current operating system image from its peer controller. You should reset only one controller if the peer controller is running and is in a healthy state. You do not lose any data if you reset only one controller.

The default behavior of this cmdlet is to reset both controllers.
