Reset to Factory Default

During OS installation WD Sentinel DX4000 restart many times due to power fluctuation. Now storage is not working properly, OS of storage is corrupted. I want to restore to Factory default settings but I not have ISO created USB or CD. Can I reset storage to factory default settings without ISO USB? Please suggest

You have the option to factory restore without erasing the data

please check page 51 on the Manual 

but if you decide to do a full factory restore then yes you will need to create an ISO via USB

Need about network settings:

I have configured one ethernet with DHCP and working fine. Now I want to configure second ethernet for anothe network, I pluged th cable in second ethernet but ethernet status is showing unplged cable. and also unable ti assigne an IP address in second ethernet. Please guide me. I have also test my cable there is no issue with cable

Can I used both ethernet for diffent network DMZ and LAN.

LAN Network setting is:

Ip: 192.168.1.x



DMZ network:

IP: 172.28.x.x

sub: 255.255.x.x

Please guide

The Ethernet jacks can not be used the way you are trying to use them. So it’s not something you are doing wrong, they are set to be a backup connection if 1 fails. It’s like a clone. Same as the 2 power inputs, if 1 fails, the 2nd will take over.

Thank You for your reply.

It means I can use only one IP??

Can I use static IP?

Yes you can assign a static IP and you can assign more than one in the advanced properties, but as was said you can only configure one nic and no matter which hole it is plugged in it will be the same

Be very careful when making changes to the nic, if you mess up or disable the nic, then you will have no other option but to do a server recovery, which is time consuming and requires some skill. This is because the server is headless and you just cut off your only way in.
