Using the RESET CONFIG Button on the SRX650 Services Gateway


If a configuration fails or denies management access to the services gateway, you can use the RESET CONFIG button to restore the services gateway 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. The 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.

  • By default, pressing and quickly releasing the RESET CONFIG button loads and commits the rescue configuration through the J-Web interface or the CLI. (For details, see the CLI Explorer.)

  • By default, pressing and holding the RESET CONFIG button for 15 seconds or more—until the STATUS LED blinks red—deletes all configurations on the services gateway, including the backup configurations and rescue configuration, and loads and commits the factory configuration.

For details about factory-default settings, see Viewing Factory-Default Settings of the SRX650 Services Gateway.

For details about performing initial software configuration, see Configuring Basic Settings for the SRX650 Services Gateway with the CLI or the J-Web Interface.
