Nexus 5000 factory Default problem

           The issue is that in a Nexus 5000 switch, when I do a write erase, it does not bring the switch to the default state.

I have been manually removing snmp and AAA commands and then doing wr erasr to bring the switch to the factory default state.

Has anyone faced this issue, I suspect it is a Bug.

What version of NX-OS are you running?

You need to issue the wr erase command and refuse to save changes when prompted for prior to reload.

I have had the same experience, when write erase and reload

( 60 seconds later) does not default the box, it comes up

with configuration entries.  ver 4.1.3.N2.1  again snmp entries deleted.  There is no prompt upon reload to save or not save current configuration
