Aleksey,

This shouldn't be different from other similar Catalyst series: Connect to the console of the switch. Power off the switch, then press the MODE button and while keeping it pressed, plug the power back in. Keep the MODE button pressed and watch the console output. After holding the MODE button for roughly 10-15 seconds, the switch should end up in the switch: prompt - this is the "ROMMON" mode although these switches do not really have a ROMMON, rather, it is simply a bootloader prompt.

Check out this documentation as well:

Best regards,
Peter

Hi Peter,

 

Will the Mode button remove any configuration on the switch such assigned VLANs , interface switch mode, etc?
