There is a feature implemented in 6.3.0 to format the flash memory of a supported router.
This button will only appear in the NetCloud OS if an issue is detected with the flash memory.
- If the NetCloud Client gets stuck during its installation with the NetCloud Client Status icon showing a grey circle with three dots
- If you are using CP Secure Threat Management and you have to re-download the rules after every reboot
Troubleshooting & Implementation
You can verify the status of the filesystem by running the following CLI command:
The output should look like this:
- Note*: If any of these values are non-zero, a button will appear in the Admin Pages that will format the flash memory
If there is a problem with the filesystem a "Format Persistent Memory" button will appear under System > System Control > Device Options.
If you are wanting to accomplish this from the CLI instead of the NetCloud OS, you can use the following command:
set /control/system/format_persistent_storage 1
- Note*: This will erase any data being stored on the flash (certificates, NetCloud Client, SDK apps, IPS rules)
