Steps to take when reinstalling the NGFW software

Overview

Changing or upgrading hardware and now you need to do a fresh install of the Edge Threat Management NG Firewall software?

These are the steps you should take. Please note that the reinstall must be completed in-person, with physical access to the hardware you're installing onto. (You cannot reinstall remotely.) We recommend having a keyboard, mouse, and monitor connected to the hardware while reinstalling.
