Aruba Wireless: How To Factory Reset An Aruba AP

I have come across one instance in particular where I needed to reset a few Aruba APs to factory default.  You have to break the boot sequence and you have a three second window to do this.  Connect your console cable up and boot the AP.  Wait until you see the following, then hit the enter key:
Hit <Enter> to stop autoboot:  3
