In some situations, you may wish to clear all configuration information, logs, and other data stored on the Local Manager. Factory reset completes the following:
No data is retained. Following a factory reset, the Local Manager is in its initial state, just as it was when it was shipped. However, it will remain on its current software revision if it has been upgraded since its purchase.
To set an individual port back to its initial state, use the config system clear port command.
If the Local Manager is managed by a Control Center, delete it from the inventory before starting the factory reset.
Following a factory reset, the Local Manager will need to be reconfigured.
Local Managers can be factory reset using the config reinstall command. To protect against accidental usage, this command is not included in any of the default roles. It must be added to the role of the user. In this example, we will create a new role and assign it to the admin user.
1) Create a role called reinstall.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config role reinstall Role reinstall does not exist. Create (y/n): y
2) Add the config reinstall permission to the role.
[config role reinstall]# allow config reinstall [config role reinstall]# exit
3) Edit the admin user and assign the reinstall role on the system resource.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config user admin [config user admin]# system reinstall [config user admin]# exit
4) Admin can now run the config reinstall command.
[admin@UplogixLM]# config reinstall ** Issuing this command will completely reset the system. ** ** All data will be lost. IP connectivity will be lost. ** Proceed? (y/n): y
If the Local Manager is managed by a Control Center, role creation and assignment will need to be done on the Control Center.
A factory reset can be initiated if you have physical access to the Local Manager keypad. To do so:
By default, the Local Manager will try to acquire an IP address via DHCP, so you will have to readdress the device once it finishes.
You can connect to the console port of the Uplogix 500 and watch the factory reset process.
Read through the instructions completely before attempting to factory reset your device.
Release the power button when the system health light turns off.
You can connect to the console port of the Uplogix 430 and watch the factory reset process.
If you do not complete the sequence of button presses, the device will boot normally.
