Cisco ASA 5505 Factory Reset

I have an old ASA5505 that we no longer use and we are going to give it to one of our sister companies but I need to reset all parameters back to factory. I consoled in and ran the factory reset command but it didnt rest everything. At first glance, the telnet/ssh and enable passwords are still set as is the name of the router (ie mycompanyname>)

Is there a way to reset this at one time or does it all to be done piecemeal?

Thanks

Did you save the config after the factory reset command?

Specifically, step 8 on this page:

Write erase should normally do the trick (and a reload).

type ‘config factory-default’

then type ‘reload save-config noconfirm’

the above command will save the running config, and then reboot the device without another prompt.
