RESTORE TO FACTORY DEFAULTS

INTRODUCTION

If you can no longer connect to your Server (e.g. forgotten password), you can reset your Raspberry Pi to factory settings.

RASPBERRY PI

A highly popular computer, which can be used in many electronic projects, and for many other applications. Raspberry Pi is very easy to find and is available all over the world without restrictions.

 

Format your SD card

Step 1: Remove the Micro SD card from the Server and place it in your PC.

Step 2: Start the SDFormatter software

Step 3: Select the drive that contains the SD card

Step 4: Click “Format” then “Yes” to confirm the start of the format operation

Step 5: Download the latest version of the Server Software file

Step 6: Start Win32 Disk Imager software for Microsoft Windows or Etcher for macOS;

Step 7: Select the directory containing the server software file

Step 8: Select the drive that contains the SD card

Step 9: Click “Write” then “Yes” to confirm the start of the writing operation

Step 10: Remove the Micro SD card from the PC and place it in your Raspberry.

 

NOTE: By formatting, your settings for the web configuration panel (for example network settings) will be lost. The Server will obtain an IP address from the DHCP server.

HOW TO RESTORE THE IP TO DHCP OR SET A STATIC ONE

PREPARE YOUR
USB KEY

Step 1: Format a USB Key in FAT32.

Step 2: Download the latest version of the file: STATIC IP or DHCP IP.

Step 3: Extract the files from usb.zip.

Step 4: Drag and drop the eve.settings.txt inside the formatted USB.

Step 5: Remove the USB from the PC and plug it in your Raspberry or EVE X1.

Step 6: You can start/stop services to apply settings in the file, or simply restart the system.

Step 7: After you’ve restarted the system, wait 20 seconds and unplug the USB Key.

Step 8: Now the system will have the parameters that you have chosen in the configuration.
