Question about Cisco Catalyst 2912 LRE XL (WS-C2912-LRE-XL-RF) Networking Switch
From a console login, should look something like this:
Go to privileged EXEC mode with the command "Enable"
Enter the command "erase startup-config"
It will prompt you to confirm
When you confirm, it will bring you back to this prompt
Now, enter the command "reload"
It will prompt you to confirm. And after a reload, you will be brought back to a screen that looks like this:
Press ENTER to begin
NOTE: if you are telnetting to the switch it WILL boot you out as you cannot keep an established telnet session without VTY line passwords and those are cleared by this process.
ALSO NOTE: This will NOT erase your VLAN data, VLANs are stored in a special file in Flash on a Cisco switch and SHOULD NOT be erased without professional help as there is a risk of destroying the IOS load on the switch.
