This process clears prior committed configuration parameters, except for those which preserve a Virtual Chassis configuration. This is how you can restore the factory default configuration on a Virtual Chassis (multiple devices configured to work together that look like a single device) without removing anything needed to keep the Virtual Chassis working.
