Clear Policies, Rules, Configuration without Factory Reset

L3 Networker

Hello Community,


Can someone please let me know if its possible to clear the PA-VM of all Security Policie, NAT rules, configuration, logs etc without issuing the command:


request system private-data-reset


This command requires that I re-install the license when all I want to do is clear the configuration etc.


Thank you

To delete everything under Policies


admin@PA-200> set cli config-output-format set
admin@PA-200> configure

admin@PA-200# delete rulebase


type "delete" and then give one space and the type ? you will get list of item that you can delete. Try delete one be one and doing commit if you delete everything and then do a commit and it might throw some error so you will not get to know deleting which thing caused those errors.


Hope this helps!

Great thanks
