I am asuming that you do not know the enable passwords to clear the config. Please follow the URL but when you get to step 9 enter Y(es) to start the configuration script.

If you do have the enable password, enter "write erase" at the enable prompt and reload unit.

Yes I know the enable password. I will look at link you suppiled in post . I thought maybe there was a simple command line command I could enter like reset all or something to wipe it clean of all prior configurations

Re: reset catalyst 3500 XL series to factory defaults

If you know the enable password,

all you need is write erase and reload

It's also a good idea to delete the vlan.dat file. This will delete any configured vlan's and reset VTP to defaults.
