Sometimes the need arises to reset a PXSe unit to factory conditions, e.g. a unit was in the field, its IP parameters were changed and are not known, so there's no access to rerconfigure or debug it.
PXSe units starting with S/N 65676 have a Factory Reset facility that is activated by the following procedure:
Once the avobe procedure is completed, the PXSe is set to "Factory Defaults":
PXS Configuration: Serial Number: <Serial_number> Model: 5002302 Revision: 4 License: <License> Feature Set: <Features> Boot Major: 3 Boot Minor: 56 HDLC Major: 3 HDLC Minor: 47 HDLC Hybrid: Bisync MAC Address: <MAC_Address> Password: <none> File Start: 053D0000 Cfg Start: 053E0000 Telnet: enabled Telnet Timeout: 300 Boot Timeout: 0 DHCP: disabled Command line: <none> Environment: <none> Default App: hdlcsrv Logging: disabled Reliable: disabled Debug: disabled Agent: disabled Async: disabled Trap: disabled Web: enabled Control: enabled GDB: disabled Heartbeat: disabled Monitor: disabled Primary: disabled Auto: disabled Update: disabled Facility: 0 Community: laygopxs Contact: <none> Location: <none> Tag: <none> Script: /cgi-bin/pxsautocfg.cgi Static IP Configuration: IP Address: 192.168.250.250 IP Netmask: 255.255.0.0 IP Gateway: 192.168.250.1 DNS Server: 0.0.0.0 DNS Domain: <none> Host Name: pxs-<Serial_number> NTP Server: 0.0.0.0 FTP Server: 0.0.0.0 HTTP Server: 0.0.0.0 Log Server: 0.0.0.0 SMTP Server: 0.0.0.0 SNMP Server: 0.0.0.0 TFTP Server: 0.0.0.0 Standby Server: 0.0.0.0 Virutal IP: 0.0.0.0 UTC Offset: 0
There are two very important things to note here:
Boot Timeoutparameter is set to
0, which means that the PXSe ramains in RedBoot and the default application is not started.
It will be necessary to access the RedBoot prompt and change these two parameters to the appropriate value, i.e., the default application to the corresponding one (e.g.
synctunnel) and the timeout value to probably 15 seconds (this is what we typically use).
In addition, the IP parameters will have to be set to the appropriate parameters according to the network where the PXSe is installed.
