Question:  How do I set the controller to its factory defaults?


Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS versions.




To reset the controller to default settings, follow these steps:



1) Issue these commands in the cpboot prompt:

cpboot> setenv cfgfile 1
cpboot> save
cpboot> boot

The set up dialog box is displayed.



2) Enter all your information.



3) As the controller boots up, stop the autoboot and issue these commands:

cpboot> setenv cfgfile
cpboot> save
cpboot> boot



These commands make sure that the environment variable is cleared after the startup is complete. Or else, every time the switch reboots, the startup script will be run over and over again.
