hello Expert,
 
I have a 2900 series router and i am using Cisco Configuration Professional .

I am trying to reset same to factory default but i not finding an option to do so.

I know using the SDM there is an option Configuration Management and one of the option is a tab to reset to a factory default.

I not seeing that option when using Cisco Configuration Professional.

Regards

Jomo

To reset the switch to factory default, issue the erase startup-config or write erase command. This command does not clear the boot variables, such as config-register and boot system settings. You can alter the boot system parameters with the boot command. In Catalyst 4500/4000 and 6500/6000 series switches running Cisco IOS Software, you can change the configuration register value with the config-register command.
This example shows how to reset a switch running Cisco IOS Software to factory defaults with the write erase command:
Cat2950# write erase
Erasing the nvram filesystem will remove all files! Continue? [confirm]y[OK]
Erase of nvram: complete
Cat2950#
Cat2950# reload

System configuration has been modified. Save? [yes/no]: n    

!--- Do not save the configuration at this prompt. Otherwise, the switch
!--- reloads with the current running configuration and does not reset to default.

Proceed with reload? [confirm]y

Use the telnet feature in CCP and once you're at the CLI, issue the "erase startup" command and then "reload".
