Factory Reset of a Fabric Interconnect
To do a factory reset you will have to SSH into the FI’s.

The fabric interconnects are rebooting again and now you need a console cable to configure the FI’s for the first time. You can see that at the post : Initial setup of a Fabric Interconnect.
Be careful with a factory reset ! Everything will be erased and no configuration is left. Not even the IP’s.
