    back to its factory default condition.  It also defines a "factory-default"
    datastore to allow clients to read the factory default configuration for the

    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.

Working Group Summary

    The work has strong consensus in the WG. 

    The Secdir review highlighed a concern with the general boilerplate security
    text used for YANG models.  This is not specific to this document or the
    YANG model defined in this document and should not delay its publication.
    We should discuss with the security ADs whether further updates to the
    standard YANG model security text is required.
