Brocade 5000 Factory Reset

Hi

We have some Brocade 5000's that need reseting before their removed from the environment. I have logged onto the Switches and did "Switchdisable" then "configdefualt". When I reboot it, the switch comes back how it was.

What am I doing wrong and how can I fix this?

Hi, what are you expecting it to clear? Everything?

You can see in the "Brocade Fabric OS Command Reference Guide" what is not included in the configdefault.

Examples: IP, license keys, zoning

Hi,

before you procede with this command read carefully:

save all license from "licenseshow" output command

you must have a serial cable in order to login, set IP Adress, and add the license again after executed the command.

the command is:

"configremoveall"
