Factory Reset a HPE FlexFabric 5700 to defaults

Not to long ago, we received a new HPE FlexFabric 5700 switch and we proceeded to muck around with the configuration settings trying a few things that we normally would never do to a production switch.  When we were done having fun and learning, we needed to reset the unit back to defaults so we could really deploy it into production.  Of course, resetting a switch to factory defaults is not something you do very often, so we had to actually RTFM.  I’ll save you the time of that here…

From the serial console, execute these commands:

restore factory-default
yes
save
yes
{hit enter}
reboot

When the switch reboots, it will be at defaults.

Below is a screen snapshot of what you’ll see during this process.
