Resetting the Configuration File When the SRX110 Services Gateway Is Inaccessible

You can use the SRX110 Services Gateway's Reset Config button to restore the device's configuration file when the current one is faulty or fails. You can also change the default behavior of the Reset Config button.

Using the Reset Config Button on the SRX110 Services Gateway

If a configuration fails or denies management access to the services gateway, you can use the Reset Config button to restore the device to the factory default configuration or a rescue configuration. For example, if someone inadvertently commits a configuration that denies management access to a services gateway, you can delete the invalid configuration and replace it with a rescue configuration by pressing the Reset Config button.

Note: The Reset Config button is recessed to prevent it from being pressed accidentally.

The rescue configuration is a previously committed, valid configuration. You must have previously set the rescue configuration through the J-Web interface or the CLI.

To press the Reset Config button, insert a small probe (such as a straightened paper clip) into the pinhole on the front panel.

Changing the Reset Config Button Behavior on the SRX110 Services Gateway

You can change the default operation of the Reset Config button by limiting how the button resets the services gateway:

The no-rescue option prevents the Reset Config button from loading the rescue configuration. The no-clear option prevents the Reset Config button from deleting all configurations on the services gateway.

To return the function of the Reset Config button to its default behavior, remove the config-button statement from the device configuration.
