Setting Factory Configurations

Setting Factory Configurations


You can configure basic information as factory configurations as needed. After the device is configured to restore factory configurations, you do not need to configure the basic information. If an unknown problem occurs on the device, or the device operations are slow or unstable after the device has been running for a long time, you can specify default factory settings as the factory configuration to restore the device to the initial state.

Hold down the RESET button for more than 5s to restart the device. The factory configurations are restored after the device restarts. It is recommended that you perform this operation under the guidance of technical support personnel.


  1. Run set factory-configuration from { current-configuration | filename | default }

    The current configuration, existing configuration file, or default factory configuration is configured as the factory configuration.

  2. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  3. (Optional) Run set factory-configuration operate-mode { reserve-configuration | delete-configuration | delete-user-configuration }

    The mode of restoring the factory configuration is set to reserve or delete.

    Reserve mode: The current configuration file will be reserved after you restore factory configurations.

    Delete mode: The current configuration file will be deleted after you restore factory configurations.

    By default, the system reserves the previous configuration file when restoring the factory configuration.

  4. (Optional) Run factory-configuration reset

    The device is configured to restore the factory configuration after it restarts.

  5. (Optional) In the system view, run factory-configuration prohibit

    The command disables the function that restores the factory configurations of a device by holding down RESET.

    If you want to restore the factory configurations of a device by holding down RESET, run the undo factory-configuration prohibit command to enable this function.


    Only the AR1500&AR550E&AR2500 series does not supports this command.

Verifying the Configuration
