I'm assuming this is a simple question.
I've been configuring a new 3500yl switch to replace an old switch and I've got part of the config wrong.  We have other 3500's in our network and I'm using them to base my config, but I've done something different and just want to start over.  Is there a command I can use to restore it to factory default?

Thanks,

Dan

To reset the switch to factory default settings, locate both the Clear and the Reset buttons.  Depress them simultaneously.  Release the Reset button, and hold Clear only until the self test LED begins to blink.  This entire process takes less than 2 seconds.  The switch will reboot with factory default settings.

The time from releasing the Reset button until the test LED starts to blink requires around 20 seconds.

You can also use the CLI command "erase startup-config" and reload the switch
