Is there a way to wipe out PA Firewall Configuration remotely via CLI?

L1 Bithead

Hello,

 

We have a PA firewall stationed off site and it is connected to our central office via IPSec S2S tunnel.

We are planning to decommission the said device and wipeout the config.

is there a way to remove the PA config via remotely, via CLI (able to use SSh)?

 

Thanks

@SIIX_Support,

Not fully. Without entering maintenance mode the best thing you can do is resetting the private data. This will remove all logs and restore the default configuration, but importantly it doesn't zero out the data or erase the system disks. If you just want to reset it but will maintain the equipment or destroy the drives separately that may be okay, but I'd want to actually run a factory reset before getting rid of it.

This also removes the management IP, which can be annoying when doing this remotely...
