The Basics page gives you information about your B Series Appliance and allows you to monitor your system. You can also set your local time to any valid global time zone. The system time is displayed in UTC by default.

In nearly all scenarios, this setting can be left unchanged. BeyondTrust discourages multiple sites on one B Series Appliance. However, if your setup requires more than one site responding to one IP address, select a default site to respond should someone enter the IP address directly rather than the domain name. If more than one DNS entry directs to this IP address and you select No Default, an error message appears if someone tries to access your site by entering the IP address.

From this page, you can also reboot or shut down your B Series Appliance. Although rebooting your B Series Appliance is not required, you may want to make a monthly reboot part of your regular maintenance. You do not need physical access to the B Series Appliance in order to perform this reboot.

Reset Appliance to Factory Defaults

Please do not do the following unless instructed to do so by BeyondTrust Technical Support: Clicking the Reset Appliance to Factory Defaults button reverts your B Series Appliance to its factory state. This completely removes all data, configuration settings, sites, and certificates from your B Series Appliance. Once the B Series Appliance is reset, it also powers itself off.
