Changing the Reset Config Button Behavior on the SRX 210 Services Gateway

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

  • To prevent the Reset Config button from setting the device to the factory default configuration and deleting all other configurations, enter the following command. You can still press and quickly release the button to reset it to the rescue configuration.

    user@host# set chassis config-button no-clear

  • To prevent the Reset Config button from setting the device to the rescue configuration, enter the following command. You can still press and hold button for 15 seconds or more to reset the router to the factory defaults.

    user@host# set chassis config-button no-rescue

  • To disable the button and prevent the device from resetting to either configuration, use the following command:

    user@host# set chassis config-button no-clear no-rescue

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 router.

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