Delete or reset a site
Delete a Customer Site
- When you delete a site from the portal, all information related to that site is deleted from the portal. If this is the customer’s only site, all customer information is deleted from the portal.
- If the BE4000 is deployed and online when a site is deleted, the BE4000 is reset to factory defaults and stops functioning. Phone calls can no longer be made or received.
- If a deployed site is offline when it is deleted, then BE4000 must be manually reset to factory default condition before it can connect to the portal again.
Step 1: Select a site from the partner portal.
Step 2: Right-click and click Delete Site.
Step 3: Click OK to confirm deletion.
Manually Reset to Factory Default
To perform a factory reset manually, the local administration portal allows you to access the BE4000 appliance and perform a factory reset.
NOTE: When the partner administrator performs a Delete Site on the BE4000 portal, the BE4000 is automatically reset to factory defaults, and a manual reset is not required.
If a manual factory reset is desired, perform it only after deleting the site from the BE4000 portal. If the factory reset was performed before deleting a site, you must reload (power cycle) the appliance after deleting the site from BE4000 portal and before it is deployed again.
