After removing the EX-4500 from a virtual chassis configuration, I ran into a few problems within the config. I noticed something in the configuration that I thought was strange.
admin@lab-ex-1# set system commit factory-settings reset-virtual-chassis-configuration
In order to get the node working properly after removing it from the cluster, I had to issue three commands. Again making sure that I am in configure mode.
A. Revert the system to factory default configuration within the CLI. admin@lab-ex-1# load factory default B. The key here is to make sure that this configuration is ran in order for the configuration to take effect properly: admin@lab-ex-1# delete system commit factory-settings C. Commit the modified default configuration file: admin@lab-ex-1# commit
