Hi Hsann,

 

per FOS 7.4 CLI manaul - not sure which version of FOS you are using - the configdefault does not remove the licenses keys.

 

if you talk about the commands to clean out to factory state, then you loose your licenses, oem settings, etc. 

Or using something like firmwarecleaninstall, you loose the licenes, too. So take a backup (or supportsave) before.

 

I general, I would advise to run a configupload of the configuration before cleaning out the data just in case:

 

http://www.brocade.com/content/html/en/command-reference-guide/fos-741-commandref/commands_a_z.5.055.html

 

configDefault - Resets the nonpersistent configuration data to factory defaults.

 

This command resets nonpersistent configuration parameters only. The following parameters are not affected by this command:

  1. Ethernet MAC address, IP address, subnet mask, and boot ROM parameters
  2. IP gateway address
  3. License keys
  4. OEM customization
  5. Product ID and Vendor ID
  6. SNMP configuration
  7. System name
  8. Chassis name
  9. World wide name
  10. Zoning configuration (includes aliases, zones, and configurations)
  11. Security parameters and policies
  12. User account passwords (includes all user configuration and all built-in accounts)
  13. Switch PID format
  14. Ethernet Link Mode

this is for the configDefault as admin.
