OS10 Enterprise Edition User Guide Release


Restore factory defaults

Reboots the system to ONIE Rescue mode to restore the ONIE-enabled device to factory defaults.

  • CAUTION: Restoring factory defaults erases any installed operating system and requires a long time to erase storage.

ONIE Rescue bypasses the installed operating system and boots the system into ONIE until you reboot the system. After ONIE Rescue completes, the system resets and boots to the ONIE console.

  1. Use the up and down arrows to select the ONIE: Rescue, then press Enter. The highlight entry (*) runs automatically in the operating system.
