Will I lose Device Names w G1100 Factory Reset?

G1100 - Looks like I might have to factory re-set. I have 40 devices on network, all with custom names. I have saved my config file to restore after reverting to factory, but want to know if it will lose or restore my device names.

Thanks

Device name should be set on the device. Generally, it is not a good idea to label IP addresses on G1100. G1100 can automatically acquire host names from devices if they have NETBIOS enabled.

No need to reset now. Admin PW prompt works.

Thanks again.
