Resetting the Database to the Factory-Default Configuration


Use this procedure to reset the database to the factory-default configuration from the CLI.


This procedure removes all existing provisioning settings and is service affecting.

  1. Back up the existing configuration. This is optional.
    1. Save the configuration database to a remote location.

      See Backing Up the Configuration Database.

    2. Save the running configuration to a remote location.

      For example:

      bti7800# show running-config | nomore | save
  2. Reset the database.

    For example:

    bti7800# system database restore factory-default

The CLI session closes and both CMMs and all service modules cold reload into the factory-default configuration. This might take several minutes. All existing service module configuration is erased and traffic is affected. The CMM remains commissioned and commissioning data is retained.
