IP Office 500 complete reset

IP Office 500 complete reset

IP Office 500 complete reset

I have been tasked with doing a complete factory reset of:
- Avaya IP Office 500
- IP400 modules (two)
The purpose is to clear them (and put them up for sale if possible).
I know how to erase our company config from it. Is there anything else that I can do?

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

If you can access the company config I assume you can access the unit with Manager.

You just need to use file - advanced - erase configuration (default).

Don't forget to save the licences (if any) file - import/export - export - licence.

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

Correct, I have access. I just wanted to be sure I didn't need to clear admin stuff, IP's or whatever, as part of due diligence. I suspect we really only care about our config as it shows employee names and etc. Thanks.

Also do a erase security settings.

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

I don't seem to have credentials to get into Security Settings. If I can't locate any, would the hard reset button on the back of the unit take care of that?

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

I erased the config and now the security settings menu item doesn't have a config listed, so nothing to remove there. Is it possible that security settings left with the config?

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

Security setting are in the chassis. And yes the reset button if held the proper amount of time will clear the whole system. I don't recall off the top of my head how many seconds, but that should be easy to Gooogle.

or use the serial port and putty to reset the security settings.

RE: IP Office 500 complete reset

Thanks folks. Yeah, found a doc about the button reset. That's what I'll do.
