It's a bit hard to do that when I cant login via console or vty ;)

Anways.. A colleague @ Imtech showed me the way. 

You need to type MB at the boot sequence (which I may add takes approx 10
mins on a 1410 with single SRP) and then set the boot config to point at a
specific file.

Go into config mode and use command:
boot config factory-defaults

Hi all,

Basically I'm locked out of an ERX1410 in our lab, I cant console or vty to
it but its VR's are routing.

My question is .. whats the process to reboot the sucker and reload it to
default factory settings. Then I can paste in the config.

Appreciate your help !
