In this post I will show you how to reset a PaloAlto firewall back to factory settings. You 1st need to acquire the unit SN#
You now login via ssh by using the username maint and with the password of the unit SN#. The main window will have a ncurse like menu that will allow you to select the factory_reset operation
Select it and sit back and wait. It can take approx 3-7mins for the unit to redo it's self back to factory.
After the unit has reconfigured and has reboot, you can login back in via username/password admin/admin
You will to re-license/activate the unit and dynamic updates all license keys and updates are reverted
