Different OS on Reinstall

Today is the day of new releases! As well as bulk actions and our new changelog widget, we are also releasing the much requested option to select a different OS when reinstalling a single server or multiple servers when using the bulk action. This feature will help you if you want to keep the same IP address, but want to switch to another OS.

The selected option in the OS dropdown by default will always be the original OS, so you don’t accidentally select a different OS when not intended. However by clicking on the desired OS and completing the reinstall action the server(s) will restart with the newly selected OS. The feature also supports the Custom iPXE operating system. Before the action processes you will be asked to confirm by entering the word ‘reinstall’.

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to reach out and ask!
