Re: Remote reset

Some good ideas above. It will actually be on a network with other devices/servers, just not with me in front of it. So perhaps a network boot of a clean image would work, and I like the dual redundant image idea. Its a Pi3B, I'll read more on the boot modes.

Thanks again all.

cheers

Re: Remote reset

Hehe, I'm doing this currently on my home network for exactly that reason..! I wanted a way to remotely control the Pi in the event of a catastrophic failure that required a reinstall of the OS. But not before I've tested it within easy reach. Its early days in my use of the Pi, so plenty of things ...

Re: Remote reset

I guess I was looking for the remote version of holding down the "shift" key when rebooting the Pi so it would go into the recovery mode. Just for interest, you can edit /boot/cmdline.txt and add something like "init=/bin/bash". Then a reboot will drop you into a root shell (and not start systemd o...

Re: Remote reset

I just wondered if there was something that the ingenious Pi community had to do the similar thing. I guess I was looking for the remote version of holding down the "shift" key when rebooting...

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

I'm based in the Peak District in the UK. I'm building a home automation project and hope to use the Pi and openHAB to keep everything under control.

Remote reset

Hi,

Is there a way to reset (as in reinstall the OS from the SD card) the Pi from a Remote Desktop..?

I'm running my Pi remotely and now and again I want to wipe it and reinstall the OS, but I can't easily be in front of the Pi.

Cheers

Simon
