Issue Description

What if I hold down the MODE button on the S5700?

Solution

If the device is not using its factory settings, after you hold down the MODE button for 6s, all mode indicators blink green and then the device is restored to the default state 10s later. This does not affect the original configuration of the device.
If the device is using its factory settings, but if the device is just started or if the device is operated through the serial port, the device may fail to enter the initial setting mode after you hold down the MODE button for 6s. If the device fails to enter the initial setting mode, all mode indicators blink, and the device is then restored to the default state 10s later.
If you do not save the configuration information within 10 minutes after the device enters the initial setting mode, the device will automatically exit the initial setting mode and restores the factory settings.

For a switch model running V200R006 or later with the MODE button on its panel: If the switch is using its factory settings and the serial port is not connected, hold down the MODE button for 6s or longer. All mode indicators of the switch are steady green, and the switch enters the initial setting mode. After the switch enters this mode, the system sets the IP address of the switch to 192.168.1.253/24 by default, and sets the default level of the admin user to 15, with the password admin@huawei.com.
