Is the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series SI configured as a flat or layer-2 switch in its factory state?


I have a Cisco Catalyst 2960-S series SI switch with an unknown existing configuration.  I would like to reset it back to factory settings and erase the vlan database file.  

My hope is that I can get it running as a simple switch for a flat network with no VLANS.  The features that I care about are its 48 1GB ports and the POE support.

So I am just wondering what it's default state would be coming out of a factory reset?  Will it be (effectively) a layer 2 device that wont bunk anything on the existing network?  Do I still need to switch it from VTP Server to Client mode?  

I am unfamiliar with this network, and I don't want it monkeying any existing VLANs/network configs, which there shouldn't be.  But just in case.  I have inherited this network.
