6.05 Initialize a Cloud Server Smart: restore to original conditions Cloud Server Smart service guide

The "INITIALIZATION" consists in resetting the disk space and the template of the Cloud Server Smart. This operation can only be performed with the Cloud Server Smart switched off and Snapshots disabled.

What does the initialization not change:

The system will maintain the package (vCPU/RAM/HD) set when the initialization request is submitted, not that which is chosen when creating the Cloud Server Smart. The public IP address assigned to the Cloud Server Smart will remain the same. Any scheduled tasks associated with the Cloud Server Smart will remain active.

What does the initialization change:

Any Balancers connected to the Cloud Server Smart will need to be reconnected following the initialization. You may need to reconfigure the monitoring settings. If Plesk licenses have been installed in the Cloud Server Smart, these will need to be installed again following the initialization.
