Resetting the SRX550 High Memory Services Gateway


Use the RESET CONFIG button to return the SRX550 High Memory Services Gateway to either the rescue configuration or the factory default configuration. The button is recessed to prevent it from being pressed accidentally. To press this button, insert a small probe (such as a straightened paper clip) into the pinhole on the front panel of the chassis.

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


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.

There are two types of reset:

  • Power On—This reset occurs during the services gateway powering on and powering off. This reset is issued when the services gateway is first powered on. The system accesses the configuration settings from the boot flash for this type of reset.

  • Config—This reset is the asynchronous reset input to the services gateway. The RESET CONFIG button is used to generate a reset to load the default configuration settings from the kernel. The system accesses the default factory settings from the internal flash for this type of reset.
