I need to add two additional 2960S switches to my stack. I saw a diagram that showed how a 4 switch stack can be connected, but I couldn't find much detail on adding a switch to an existing stack (besides master election). The output below shows how the existing stack is connected and its state
I will need to break one of the stack rings between SW1 and SW2 in order to connect the new switches. Does it really matter which ring I break to connect the additional switches? Does one ring act as primary? If so, I'd rather not break that ring so this process is transparent as possible. Also, is there any benefit to disabling the stack port vs just disconnecting the cable?
