How to reset host attributes or host communication status

The Reset Host Attributes option deletes host properties and host name-to-host ID mappings information. The primary host name and host ID-based certificate are not deleted.

Resetting host attributes is useful in the following scenarios:

  • If you have downgraded a host to 8.0 or earlier to enable insecure (or back-level) communication.

  • If you experience host communication issues and you want to delete the host information.

For more information on resetting host attributes, refer to the NetBackup Security and Encryption Guide.
