Formatting a Datapower

The datapower box that our team owns is like rented a technology showroom, where different teams request access to the box and we make domains for them where they play with the box and then finally produce something that they would like to show to customers/partners. From the last one year this showroom has seen various technical scenarios being displayed, the shelves within the showroom filled with artifacts one by one. Till on fine day we decided to clean not just the shelf but the entire showroom.

In reality its not easy to clean the showroom without cleaning the shelf, but this is IBM ;), we can clean the shelf and the showroom at one go.

For this login to box via CLI or the serial cable, go to CO mode then flash mode and then run the command ‘reinit firmware_name’ (the firmware should be uploaded to the box prior to doing this).

Once the box is back after a reboot, the box is just like fresh from factory, you would have to login using the factory set username and password and accept license agreements for using the box.
