In certain situations, performing a physical factory reset or hardware reset of the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch becomes necessary that restore the Switch to its factory default settings. This RUCKUS Lennar Knowledge Base article aims to guide Lennar Home users through the proper procedure for effectively hard resetting the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch utilizing a paper clip.


Why do we need a physical factory reset of the RUCKUS ICX-7150-C12P Switch?

For instance, if the Switch is continuously booting up, stuck in boot mode (indicated by an Amber/Orange SYST LED and a Green PWR LED), or if you need to restore the device to its factory default configurations.

6. Wait for the reset process to complete: Allow the switch to complete the reset process, which may take a few minutes. During this time, the switch will reboot and restore its factory default settings.

7. Verify the reset: Once the switch has finished rebooting, you can verify that the reset was successful by attempting to access the switch using the default credentials (username: admin, password: password). You can also physically inspect the switch to ensure that the LED indicators have returned to their default state with Green PWR and SYST LEDs. (Please refer to Figure 5 for visual guidance)
