When the Operations Manager is soft rebooted or hard power cycled, it retains any configuration settings you've applied. To reset the Operations Manager to its factory default state, you can perform a factory erase using one of the methods below.
The Operations Manager then reboots into its factory default state. This may take several minutes during which it becomes uncontactable. All settings are lost, including system-generated certificates and SSH keys.
Once the Operations Manager has been reset, follow the [initial setup steps](Connect to Operations Manager for the first time) to get back up and running.
Using a bent paper clip or similar, push the ERASE button twice within 2 seconds while the unit is up and running (allow a few minutes for boot to complete if you've just powered on).
Note: Factory default login details can be found in the Quick Start Guides at https://opengear.com/support/documentation/.
