Delete configuration without doing factory reset

Delete configuration without doing factory reset

Is there any way that I can delete the current configuration for a NetScreen 25 without doing using the reset button?  We have access to the NetScreen (ie username, password etc) so we'd rather avoid doing a factory reset if possible.  I tried using the unset all command but this didn't seem to work.  The IP addresses assigned to the interfaces were still the same and all of the objects I created seem to be still there also.  Any ideas at all???

RE: Delete configuration without doing factory reset

You did the following right ?

ns25-> unset all
Erase all system config, are you sure y/[n] ? y
ns25-> reset
Configuration modified, save? [y]/n n
System reset, are you sure? y/[n] y
In reset ...

If you hit Y for config modified, save ? it will retain the config running in memory, and write this to flash (which you just removed)

Kind regards
