Provide the steps needed to reimage and reinstall BDA V4.1.0 and higher when network information for BDA servers is changing. 

The steps documented in this article return the BDA servers to factory settings so they can be used to change any server network information except private IB IPs.  (The steps to change switch or PDU information are also not included). You can use this MOS note to change any of the following:

- client hostnames
- client domain
- client IP addresses
- client gateway or subnet
- admin hostnames
- admin IPs

This note can also be used to change private IB IPs if the new cluster configuration file generated by the Configuration Utility is used to deploy the new cluster.

An example of when the steps in this note would be used is if client network hostnames or client network domain names are being changed.
