After clicking the "Start" button, a confirmation dialog will be shown before the factory reset will be executed.


Factory reset status

The status of the factory reset process will be displayed in the "Factory reset status" section.


  • After the factory reset has been executed, MindConnect Software Agent system will be rebooted, and it is recommended to close the current browser window or to reload the page after the reboot.
  • Because the network settings will also be reset, it might be possible that the device will get new IP addresses from the DHCP server. The current IP addresses can be found by following the steps described in MindConnect IoT2050's web interface.
  • If the device is onboarded before factory reset execution, the asset needs to be offboarded in Asset Manager and the device has to be onboarded again.
