Restoring factory defaults on 4108 switch

Hi,

I have a 4108 switch which is having some problems. I want to restore it to factory defaults and start again.

I cant find this in the manuals.

Any help would be most appriciated.

Thanks

Clear/Reset: Resetting to the Factory-Default Configuration

To execute the factory default reset, perform these steps:

1. Using pointed objects, simultaneously press both the Reset and Clear buttons on the front of the switch.
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 the configuration restored to the factory default settings.

Hi

Also, if you have access to that switch , you can use the command:

Switch#erase startup-config

Good Luck !!!
