                  draft-ietf-netmod-factory-default-12

Abstract

   This document defines a method to reset a server to its factory
   default content.  The reset operation may be used, e.g., when the
   existing configuration has major errors so re-starting the
   configuration process from scratch is the best option.

   A new "factory-reset" RPC is defined.  When resetting a device, all
   previous configuration settings will be lost and replaced by the
   factory default content.

   A new optional "factory-default" read-only datastore is defined, that
   contains the factory default configuration for the device.

1.  Introduction

   This document defines a method to reset a server to its factory
   default content.  The reset operation may be used, e.g., when the
   existing configuration has major errors so re-starting the
   configuration process from scratch is the best option.

   A "factory-reset" RPC is defined.  When resetting a device, all
   previous configuration settings will be lost and replaced by the
   factory default content.

   A "factory-default" read-only datastore is defined, that contains the
   data to replace the contents of implemented read-write conventional
   configuration datastores at reset.  This datastore can also be used
   in the <get-data> operation.

   The YANG data model in this document conforms to the Network
   Management Datastore Architecture defined in [RFC8342].
