    I want factory default an old MC4200 so I can use it as a test controller.  What are the steps to do this properly?

    Hi Neil,

    The cleanest option

    Reset the admin password of the controller:
    The controller has to be rebooted and once the booting process comes to the point where it displays "Accepting reset requests", type the word PASS and hit ENTER.

    You only have a few seconds, so be prepared.

    # reload-gui - Resets the Web UI process.
    # reload-management - Resets the controller’s management process.
    # reload default - Reboots the controller and restores the passwords and system configuration to the original factory settings. Additionally, the AP script files (in /ATS/scripts/*) are deleted.

    Hope that helps
