Hello there, dear Community members!

This post explains how to reset configuration/restore the default factory settings on a Huawei switch. Please read further down for details.

Huawei Switches


If you press and hold the PNP button for more than 6s, the device restores the default settings and restarts automatically.

Only the S2720-EI, S5720I-SI, S5720-LI, S5735-L, S5735S-L, S5735S-L-M, S5720S-LI, S5730-HI, S5730S-EI, S5730-SI, S5731-H, S5731-S, S5731S-H, S5731S-S, S6720-LI, S6720S-LI, S6720S-SI, and S6720-SI support this operation.


1. Configure an IP on the computer from the /24 network;

2. Connect an Ethernet cable from your PC to the interface 0/0/1 or 0/0/2 from the switch;

3. Hold down the reset button for at least 6 seconds;

4. Ping to test the connectivity.

If the ping is working, it means that you can reach the default IP address of VLANIF1.

You can run the reset saved-configuration command and then restart the device to restore the default factory settings.

<Huawei> reset saved-configuration
