reset router to factory defaults w/o reboot

I can not remember but seems that there was some command that would default specific section in a config, like interfaces, etc....

Is there a way to reset a Cisco router to factory defaults (aka erase start, reload) w/o the need to reboot? (like PIX/ASA do with 'clear configure all'.)

Not that I am aware of except that you could clearly reset all of the configuration elements back to their factory state.

On the other hand I can find no reason to need that facility other than to save the time to reboot.

nope. the only option that i can think of would be to "default interface" under each interface - you'd still need to clear out the global stuff though.

That will only merge the 2 configs, not over write the current running. No way I know of to do it shy of completely mirroring the config, ie no ip route x.x.x.x or the simple wr erase and reload. You can do the interfaces pretty easy, "default interface ".
