Reset to factory default config on 3200


I have purchased an used Silkworm 3200 switch. It already has old user's configuration & zones configured on it. I want to erase and load it to factory default. I tried configDefault command and it does run successfully & restarts the switch but it does not reset the IP or zones or the name of the switch.

Any help would be appreciated.
