My company is doing an nationwide upgrade of it's leased 2951 routers. For security sake I need to wipe everyone of them before being sending them back to the leasing company. I would like to somehow boot to a USB drive and call it a day. does anyone have a procedure / script on how to do that?
If you want to wipe your router, you have to connect the console cable to the router, then open the terminal in your PC
and in the CLI type this:
Then type "yes"
Again type "yes" (Question appears to be unanswered)
If this answer was satisfactory for you, please mark the question as Answered.
2000+ routers are a lot of routers to be pluging console cable....
To be honest I don't know if this will work but here it's:
Try to write or modify an EEM script such as this one https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/2139927 with the instructions of factory reset http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/iosswrel/ps5187/products_tech_note09186a00802017a1.shtml
If you decide to take this path and need help writing the EEM script, please let me know.
Currently I'm doing about 12 a day and it's going to ramp up over the next few weeks as more techs get onsite and upgrade these units. Plugging in and booting is getting to be a pain as it takes about 10+ min for each process. So i'm going to invest in playing around with scripting this out and hope this is a solution.
