request software reset

request software reset—Return the Viptela device to the default software image and default configuration. The default is either the factory-default image and configuration or the default image set with the request software set-default command.

When you issue this command, all non-default software images are removed from the device. Then, the device reboots with the default image and configuration.

In Releases 15.3 and earlier, this command reformats the boot partition and installs the software image again. During this process, which is very time-consuming, all logs and the configuration are lost. It is recommended that you issue a request admin-tech command to collect system-wide information before issuing this command and that you use this command only when you suspect that the filesystem is corrupt.

Output Fields
