The Factory default configuration preset and Factory reset

Administrators can apply the default factory configuration preset to Pearl-2, which resets most of the settings in each of the main configuration groups. Applying the factory default configuration preset is similar to a factory reset, but a Factory reset is more invasive. This table describes the differences.

There are different ways you can apply the Factory default configuration preset to Pearl-2, you can:

A reboot is required to apply the factory default configuration preset.

To perform a factory reset, see Perform a factory reset.

Operators who are assigned certain administrative-level privileges can apply the Factory default configuration preset and perform a factory reset, see Assign administrator privileges to operators.

Returning Pearl-2 to the factory defaults or performing a factory reset does not delete the registered resource instance in Kaltura CMS. You can reregister your Pearl-2 using the same resource name and take over for the resource instance that is still registered in Kaltura, see Reassign a registered resource.
