Applies to:

Sun Datacenter InfiniBand Switch 36 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The provided self extracted script can be used for:

1- Reset the switch configuration to the factory default settings. In this case the assumption is that the switch is going to remain in the fabric and after a sucessfull run of the script, a reboot or power cycle is required.

The script goes through the following steps to achieve this purpose: Checking firmware consistency, Stopping services, cleaning of logs, cleaning home directories, removing host keys, authorized_keys, known hosts and restoring default configs from the bundle.

NOTE: Optionally the user can select to perform file checksums verification and automatically deletion of unexpected files but this is not needed for this purpose.:

2- Secure erase of the switch in which in addition to the steps mentioned in (1), verificatin of file checksums, checking for the missing files and deletion of unexpected files is done.

This can be used when the switch does not need to remain in the fabric anymore or needs to be fully sanitized. The file checksum verification/deletion of unexpected files will indicates files that have different checksums than the default factory version, and automatically delete unexpected files on the switch.
