comment What are the instructions to reset a Watchguard Firebox X1000?
Instead of trying to reset the device, I simply used the power supply from the working one and put it into the one that it was going to be replacing (since the power supply died in it). The benefit of swapping power supplies instead of resetting the used one I purchased was that I got to keep all of the configurations without redoing everything.

comment nslookup fails but ping succeeds for nonexistent domains
You should set the hostname of the machine to subdomain.domain.com but I doubt that you would see that kind of issue. One thing you can do is use the public DNS as suggested. If the problem goes away, you know it is something strange happening with the DNS of your ISP.

fdmillion is saying the same thing as me, but he has a higher quality answer that suggests using the Google public DNS instead.

While this did not resolve the issue (I simply replaced the power supply of the old failed machine instead of worrying about a reset on the new one), I will mark it as the one that is closest to answering the question.

I really thought this was going to be what I needed; however, it did not work. When I hold the up button, it loads SysB and then has "SysB - Loopback" on the display regardless of how long I hold the button. I connected a cross-over cable to Interface 1 on the device and set my IP address to 10.0.1.2 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 and I was unable to ping the 10.0.1.1 address. I tried setting my IP address back to DHCP, and I get 0.0.0.0 for my IP address. This may be the correct set of instructions, but the IP address does not match because I cannot ping 10.0.1.1 as it states here.

Thank you, Nathan C. I can use this to 'reset' it into a "loading Sys B..." but I have no idea what to do from there because it does not give me an IP address or anything.

That is the Firebox X Edge e-Series. This device is not the same and does not have a Reset button on the rear side. (It does not have one on the front either.) This is a manual for it: watchguard.com/help/docs/FireboxXHardwareGuide.pdf but it does not specify anywhere how to reset it. It has an image of the way the device looks so you can see that they are different and that this one does not have a reset button.
