How to fully wipe and provision an existing IGEL client?


Am I right in thinking that if I have a client with iGel on it and I re-provision it with a USB stick (“OS Creator”?) it does NOT completely wipe the disk and DOES remember some settings? This being the case; how should I go about performing a full “Wipe and provision” process on an existing iGel client?


Usually, if you want to get rid of everything I would format the device in prior with a live Ubuntu. Usually, the device might hold the licences and if checked in „migrate old settings“ the old settings.


OK. Will do that


And here is a note on removing licenses — github.com/IGEL-Community/IGEL-Docs/blob/main/Docs/HOWTO-Remove-IGEL-Device-License.md


Ron, thanks for that. My iGel environment will not be on the internet so syncing UMS with the license portal won’t be possible – but we will cross that bridge when we get to it.
