This is mainly a posting as a reminder for myself and a few other VSX customers. I am working on a two week VSX, Provider-1, Eventia pilot at a Fortune 150 right now. A great command to remember during VSX testing is:

reset_gw

Once you start populating your VSX environment with virtual devices (routers, switches, bridges) and virtual systems (the virtual firewalls), it’s nice to have a way to reset the environment. You could go back and re-install the VSX members , or just simply run reset_gw. This will clean out all the VSX components you previously configured and give you a fresh environment to re-configure.

I found this command about three years ago, and then forgot the syntax. Not sure if this script is in the normal VSX documentation, but it does have an SK article (sk31984) and will save you a lot of time.

A useful VSX command during testing…

    This is documented in VSX documentation. I have used it many times.

    You are right it is actually in the old R60 VSX documentation. For some reason it is missing from the new VSX R65 Administration Guide. I can attest though that it still works. There is mention of it in the VSX R65 Release Notes, but there is not a description of what the utility actually does: just use it to remedy another situation. It did finally make it into sk31984, although for a while it was an internal-only document.
