Reset the Miniserver to factory settings

If you can no longer connect to your Miniserver (forgotten password for example), you can reset it.

The version of the Miniserver and that of the configuration software are always identical. Resetting formats the Miniserver according to the version of the configuration software.

To reset the Miniserver, place the Miniserver's SD card, which contains the configuration software, in your PC. You'll need a Micro SD card adapter.

Supported SD cards can be 2-16GB, however our SD cards are extensively tested to work with the Miniserver so you should only use the SD cards supplied by Loxone. 

Please save your current configuration (.LoxPLAN) before you reset the Miniserver.

1. Remove the Micro SD card from the Miniserver and plug it into your PC/laptop Micro SD card adapter.


2. Start the configuration software, select the "Maintenance" tab and click "Format SD card".

3. Select the drive that contains the SD card.

4. Select the directory containing the SD card contents. The currently installed version of the configuration software is the default.

5. Click "Format".

6. Click "Yes", to confirm the start of the format operation.

7. When asked if settings should be maintained, select "No". This ensures that the factory settings are restored.

By formatting, your settings for the admin interface (for example network settings) will be lost.
