Reverting to NX-OS mode

If, for any reason, you need to revert to NX-OS mode from ACI mode, then follow these steps:

  1. Reload the switch:
      admin@apic1:aci> reload
  1. Access the bootloader:
      Ctrl+]      loader>
  1. Boot using the NX-OS image:
      loader> boot nxos-image-name

This can take a little while (usually under half an hour) while the filesystem is reformatted to make subsequent reloads faster.

As you can see, from the previous code, the switch performs a fabric discovery. We will look at this in the next section.
