Re: Erase Flash in the SRX

Hi

 

What exactly are you trying to acheive? Make a brick of an SRX box? :smileyhappy:

 

To erase everything and get back to factory state, you can use operation command

 

request system zeroize

Hi PK,

 

Thanks for your suggestion. What I do is want to erase everything in the flash including configuration , logs and software image just like cisco erase flash.

Re: Erase Flash in the SRX

The sofware image / OS will still be there but the command will "Erase all data, including configuration and log files".
