Disable Express Setup on 2960

Answered Question

Hi All,

I inadvertently posted in WAN column. Is there a way to prevent erasing switch settings by holing in the MODE button? I would rather not give ability to an unsuspecting technician to nuke all my settings by holding in this button for 7 seconds.

thnx!

I have this problem too.

In global config add the line:

no setup express

This doesn't prevent wiping the config through recovery though - i.e. holding the mode button whilst power cycling the switch and then going through the recovery procedure.
