BigIP Factory default in 3 steps

When you restore the BIG-IP configuration to factory default settings, the system performs the following tasks:

Retains:

  • the management IP address
  • BIG-IP license file
  • files in the /shared partition
  • manually-modified bigdb database variables
  • Flags the Setup utility to run when the next user logs in to the Configuration utility

Removes:

  • All BIG-IP local traffic configuration objects
  • All BIG-IP network configuration objects
  • All non-system maintenance user accounts
  • System maintenance user account passwords (root and admin)
  • BIG-IP module data and policies
  • Current host name
  • local trust domain

These are the steps:

  1. Go to TMS
  2. Load the default config
  3. Save the config

After execute the 3 steps the big-ip daemon will restart using the default config, and it is ready to go again.

This is a factory default for a 11.x and 12.x code to execute on 10.x use load sys default-config
