The reset database command removes configuration files and DNS and DHCP data from the NIOS appliance database. However, the network and licensing information remains intact. The network settings of the appliance include the IP address and subnet mask for the appliance, the IP address of the gateway, the host name, and the remote access setting.
You can use this command to diagnose problems such as the following:

  • Misplacing the administrator account and password.
  • Preserving the log files when clearing the database.

The reset database auto_provision command resets the NIOS appliance to default settings, re-enables auto-provisioning, and a dynamic IP address is assigned to the appliance.
