Does anyone know how to hard reset one of these switches?

Current issue we're experiencing is that we define a new configuration, new domain ID etc. and write the config, enable the config, etc.

When the switch is rebooted, a different (older) configuration returns.


Can anyone suggest why the configuration isn't being written persistently?

[it is entirely possible that I'm doing something REALLY stupid :)]

There should be a command to reload the factory default configuration called `configdefault` Here is the help from that command:

Code:
     configDefault - restore system configuration to defaults

SYNOPSIS
     configDefault

AVAILABILITY
     admin

DESCRIPTION
     This command resets some of the system configuration  values
     to their factory defaults.

     This command may not be executed on an enabled  system;  you
     must  first  disable the system using the switchDisable com-
     mand.

     With the  exception  of  the  following,  all  configuration
     parameters  are  reset  to their default values (see config-
     ure):

           o Ethernet MAC address, IP address, and subnet mask

           o IP gateway address

           o License keys

           o OEM customization

           o SNMP configuration

           o System name

           o World Wide Name

           o Zoning configuration

           o Port speed configuration

           o Trunking configuration

           o Switch PID format

OPERANDS
     none

EXAMPLE
     switch:admin> configDefault

     Committing configuration...done.

SEE ALSO
     agtcfgDefault, configure, switchDisable, switchEnable

NOTES
     Some configuration parameters  are  cached  by  the  system.
     Hence, it is recommended that system be rebooted immediately
     following the execution of  this  command,  otherwise  unex-
     pected behavior may result.
I would make sure you have a backup of the configuration before you use this command just in case.
