Problem Details

Sometimes it is desirable to set a device to factory defaults using the web interface. Here is how.


Use the following command sequence (using e.g. http://x.x.x.x/!cmd):

config clear
config write
vars del
mod cmd FLASHMAN0 reset data erase

Note: as opposed to CF-Card/SSD drives, the Flash Disk (/DRIVE/FLASH) is erased durign a factory reset. To mimic this behaviour as close as possible, you can additionally use

mod cmd FLASH remove /block
mod cmd FLASH format /block

for devices with a Flash Disk. This will (re-) format the drive.

Known Problems

  • The procedure might change with releases.
  • Factory settings do also apply to the IP/DHCP configuration. The device may thus be unreachable after.
    • The parameter /mode client will be removed from config change DHCP0 /mode client
    • The parameter /mode disabled will be removed from config change DHCP6-0 /mode disabled
  • The default timezone for NTP will be removed from config change NTP0 /offset CET-1CEST-2,M3.5.0/2,M10.5.0/3
  • This doesn't apply to innovaphone Softwarephone.
  • The procedure removes the provisioning url. You have to add to Services/Update to use provisioning again.
  • The procedure removes the important option /cipher in the DECT base station (IP1202, not IP1200) which is needed. This is fixed in V10sr15 and V9hotfix41 and later versions, or call this command to fix it after the clear command:
config add DECT /cipher
config write
