PALO ALTO reset to default

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
