[j-nsp] VC on a QFX5100 won't go away

Excellent advice, though it doesn’t seem to be an option:

root# delete system commit ?
Possible completions:
  <[Enter]>            Execute this command
+ apply-groups         Groups from which to inherit configuration data
+ apply-groups-except  Don't inherit configuration data from these groups
> server               Commit server (batch commit)
  synchronize          Synchronize commit on both Routing Engines by default
  |                    Pipe through a command
root# delete system commit

I appreciate your help, I do. Just really stumped why this thing is so stuck.

Hi Dave,
Did you already try to delete this part of the configuration by doing?
# delete system commit factory-settings
# commit

Hi all--

I've been trying to remove the VC config from a QFX5100 running 13.2X51-D38, and I'm not having any luck. I've tried zeroizing and going into the shell to remove the files in the config/vchassis folder, but I'm having no luck.  Looking at the config, I'm seeing:

root> show configuration

commit {
        factory-settings {


Which isn't on a factory default system, but I can't seem to clear that portion of the configuration, and I when I delete the .conf files from the shell, the commit/factory-settings/reset-vc stuff pops up all over again.

This is probably a really simple thing, but I'm not getting it. Can anyone help?

Thanks much.
