Quickly reset sensor configuration

I wonder if there is a quick way to reset the sensor 4200 appliance would do it, but it takes a lot of work and I really don't want to restore OS or anything like that...just want a quick way to restore to factory configs, or a "blank" configuration

A related question: what happens if you remove or rename all .conf files? will sensor restore the files with factory configs when you reboot?

Thanks much in advance

Re: Quickly reset sensor configuration

If you run sysconfig-sensor and re-enter all of the information then it will generate brand new configuration files from saved templates.

Sysconfig-sensor option 6 (at least think it was option 6) which prompts for the Host ID and Org ID information will delete all of the current IDS config files, pull clean fresh config files from a template directory and modify just those few items that you have to enter in sysconfig-sensor.
