StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch reset to default

Hi there,

I have a little problem:

I have a StorageWorks 8/40 SAN Switch, which was bought as a used part. Now we need to bring it out to another Customer, but need to reset the configuration first.

Password, IP Address was resettet by me, also i tried to delete all configs via CLI.

There still are 2 logical switches and the FCR Settings won´t go away.

Also i´ve tried 

switchdisable

cfgdisable (hit "y" at prompt)

cfgclear (hit "y" at prompt)

cfgsave (hit "y" at prompt)

configdefault

switchenable

reboot

But the result is: Nothing.

The 2 logical switches stays where they are...

Is there any possibility to set those switches to "Factory default" and delete ALL the configurations?

Sorry i´m not very familiar with these SAN Switches...

Thank you very much

Lutz

Hello Lutz,

I hope, you still can access the unit at its root user level ... in that case, please try out the following CLI commands one by one. Be sure to answer to all the security advices with 'yes' as well to the elements to delete:

  configremoveall
  configdefault -all
  passwddefault

On Brocade units running FOS 5.x, 6.x and 7.x, the following parameters will may survive this 'switch back':

  IP addresses
  System name
  Chassis name

Hope, it will work.

Regards

 Norbert
