Restoring the Factory Default

Configuration

As part of your troubleshooting process on the Switch, it may become

necessary to return the switch configuration to the factory default settings.

This clears any passwords, clears the console event log, resets the network

counters to zero, performs a complete self test, and reboots the switch into

its factory default configuration including deleting the IP address, if one is

configured.

This process removes all switch configuration changes that you have made

from the factory default settings. This includes, for example, configuration of

VLANs, Spanning Tree, trunks, and stacking. Returning the configuration of

these features to their factory default settings (usually disabling them) may

result in network connectivity issues.

If the switch has a valid configuration, and you are restoring the factory default

settings for a reason other than configuration problems, you should save the

switch configuration prior to performing the factory default reset. Then, after

the reset and resolution of the original problem, you can restore the saved

configuration to the switch. For both the save and restore processes, you can

use the console copy command. For more information on this command, see

the Management and Configuration Guide, which is on the HP Web site at

www.hp.com/networking/support.

You can restore the factory default configuration either on the switch itself,

or through the switch console.

To execute the factory default reset on the switch, perform these steps:

1.

Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear

buttons on the front of the switch. The power and fault lights come on.

2.

Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.

3.

When the Self Test LED begins to flash, release the Clear button.

The switch will then complete its self test and begin operating with its

configuration restored to the factory default settings.

To restore the factory default configuration using the console, execute the

erase startup-config command from the console command prompt.

Sometimes it might be helpful to reset an HP Procurve / Aruba switch to it&#;s default factory config, and weirdly it took me until my rd installed switch (yes, I actually looked up how many I&#;ve installed over the years for this) before I needed this command, so I had to not only Google it, but also dig trough the command reference until I actually managed to find the command I was looking for. Therefore, I made this post for Google to index, so that when you need it, you&#;ll be able to find it quicker!

The command is quite simple, just run erase startup-config, it&#;ll tell you what you&#;re about to do, and finally acknowledge what you&#;re about to do with an y. This command should work on just about any firmware level of any HP Procurve or Aruba Switch.



This post is part of a new series called Network Friday, where I explain a new networking concept &#;every&#; Friday and tell you have to configure it on (mostly) HP hardware. The series will mostly focus on the configuration side, as I feel there are lots of resources out there that do a fine job of explaining complex concepts, but very few that show you how to do it on your specific hardware. This series aims to address this somewhat, at least on the HP side of the fence.

I picked up an HP g JA switch for my home lab that I am trying to reset, but the instructions provided by HP don't seem to be working:

1. Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear buttons on the front of the switch. The power and fault lights come on.
2. Continue to press the Clear button while releasing the Reset button.
3. When the Self Test LED begins to blink, release the Clear button.
The switch will then complete its self test and begin operating with its configuration restored to the factory default settings.

I've followed this process several times, but it's not completing the reset. For one, it never displays the power and fault lights, even after holding for >30 seconds. However, if I let go of the reset and continue to hold clear, it does blink the "Test" LED. Once it comes back up, it appears to load the configuration it had when it was uninstalled.

I don't know any passwords to access the CLI, which is one reason I need to reset it in the first place. Is there something I'm missing?

Edit: I am connecting via the USB console with Putty which connects straight away.

So, the console cable does not work or works?

The instruction is correct for restoring it back to factory default settings.

Username: admin Password: admin (DEFAULT ENABLE PASSWORD)

Make sure that when you use ssh with serial - select the proper COM # from your computer .

For Windows10 - click on the File explorer, then right click on "This PC" then choose Manage. Once you got the Computer Management console, expand Device Manager then look for Ports (COM & LPT). there should be Com1, Com2, Com3 depending on how many available ports your PC can find.

I hope this helps.

It's possible to disable the front panel reset from the CLI as a security measure. That may have been done.

You can also reset to factory from the CLI after logging in to the switch.  I have used both methods.

Yes, I am able to connect to the console by USB using PUTTY.

I have tried admin/admin as well as a few others I've found while searching for default config on this. I get "unable to verify password" in all cases.

When I said I don't have CLI access, what I mean is that I don't have the password to enter privileged exec mode, so I can't use the CLI to perform the reset.

That being said, I did manage to get this reset. When I performed the button press steps again, I realized it was booting into recovery mode where I had to use the "erase startup-config" command to clear the switch before doing anything else. So the process was working, just not giving me the indicators & the instructions I was going off of neglected to mention this step.
