To perform factory reset on 410-SE:

  1. Once the power LED is flashing, power OFF the appliance using the power button to the right of the NMI reset button. Hold the power button for few seconds (10–20 seconds).

    Note:

    Press and hold the power button for a few seconds to turn off the appliance.

  2. While still holding the power button, use a paper-clip to press the NMI reset button until the green LED and other LED lights are turned off. Power ON the appliance using the power button. The green LED starts blinking on and off for the next 20–25 minutes until the eUSB recovery process is finished.
  3. Wait for few minutes, approximately 5 minutes initially as no activity happens on the CLI. Non-activity in CLI does not mean nothing is happening. The system is initializing the process.

    Tip

    • Pressing the reset button even number of times cancels the reset action and results in normal appliance reboot.
    • Pressing the reset button odd number of times performs a factory reset.
    • Power LED flash indicates that the appliance is being reset.
  4. After 5 mins the appliance restarts and the CLI is displayed. There might be couple of reboots (approximately, 4–5) for extracting the software image from the eUSB (sdb) and copying, programming, and reflashing to the SATADOM (sda).
