Best way to reset multiple switches at once ??????

Hello

 

I am in charge of networking cisco lab for students to learn on Catalyst 2960s & have been trying to research how to factory reset multiple switches at once, in case the students dont reset it properly.

I have come across tcl/eem/expect/smart install/remote shell/plink/octal cabling but still struggling to find a way to do this as I have always struggled with scripting regardless of how many examples/tutorials I come across.

 

If anyone has any ideas or good documentation any help would be much appropriated the biggest problem I see is that some of the auto methods need you to telnet/ssh into the switch which isnt practical & from my limited understanding to try & hook up many switches to a single switch wont work as the switches wont be on trunk port mode to be able to talk to a "master" switch?????

 

PS: Also looking for a way to automate a password reset for the switch for when the student uses a different password & forgets to factory reset it if that is even possible????

 - Factory reset is intended to use sparse and usually require access to the device such as for instance the need to press a reset button for a number of seconds. You can not acquire this with scripting only.
