Local Ethernet 3 Disabled

Hi there,

I was trying to set an static IP to my DX4000, but managed to disable the Ethernet team. :( Now the server can’t get an IP address, nor I can access it. How do I access the server to enable the network again?

Please help…


When this happened on my headless MediaSmart Server, I had to reinstall the OS. You might have to do the same.

Hmm, okay, but how do I reset it? I have a reset button on the back, but nothing happens when I push it :frowning:

I wish it was that easy.

You have to go to the DX4000 support page and download the OS ISO. Then burn a DVD or mount the image to create a bootable USB flash drive to put into the back of the server. Then you use the reset pin to tell the server to pull in the OS.

You need a 8GB USB flash drive. If it’s USB 3.0 the reinstall will be even quicker. USB 2.0 is still faster then from a USB DVD drive.




Thanks a lot for your answer, does this only format the C: drive? Or will it take all partitions?

You will have the option of either.

The pdf is worth the download, it explains everything and has photos. Good Luck.

Thanks again, very helpful, ill give it a try, and never disable network again :slight_smile:

I was doing some tests to look into how the teaming is done for the network card. I was hoping to use both to maximise speeds across my network, but they are set to use the 2nd only if the 1st connection fails.
