Notes

The configuration setting will be cleared only within the specified scope. This may reveal an underlying value for the setting within a child scope. For example, suppose that we already have a DNS server address obtained via DHCP, which we then override manually using the set command:

  iPXE> dhcp net0
  DHCP (net0 52:54:00:12:34:56).... ok
  iPXE> show dns
  net0.dhcp/dns:ipv4 = 192.168.0.1
  iPXE> set dns 8.8.8.8
  iPXE> show dns
  dns:ipv4 = 8.8.8.8

If we then clear the DNS server address within the top-level scope, the underlying value will be restored:

  iPXE> show dns
  dns:ipv4 = 8.8.8.8
  iPXE> clear dns
  iPXE> show dns
  net0.dhcp/dns:ipv4 = 192.168.0.1
