Cannot configure switch-stack to go from provisioned to ready

Hi everyone,

 

I had a stack of 4 switches. Everything worked well and was already configured. I mounted the switches on the rack then my 4th switch showed as being "provisioned". I looked up instructions from one of the threads and it said to do a "no switch 4 provisioned" command, and then reload my stack, and everything should come back up to normal.

 

I tried that and now my 4th switch is not showing up and my 3rd is now showing provisioned. Can someone point me in the right direction please!

This is what it looks like when I do a show switch command:

Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*1 Active 9a8c.4843.3401 15 V02 Ready
2 Standby 9854.b238.e385 11 V02 Ready
3 Member 0000.0000.0000 0 Provisioned

I also checked my cables and they are good.

Hi,

Can you disconnect the 4th switch from the stack completely and re-provision the 3rd switch and bring it back online?

Once that is completed, follow the instructions in this link to add the 4th switch as a member:

Hey Reza,

 

I will give that a try. After doing this and re-provisioning the 3rd switch, will it go back to "ready"

Hi,

Yes, if you provision it again and reboot it, it should go back to ready again.

Re: Cannot configure switch-stack to go from provisioned to ready

Can you post-show run - like see provision information? what is the model of the switch and IOS information.

As you mentioned you have tested offline and after racking it was not working.

have you put the configuration of the device priority, all are same version of IOS please confirm.

 

 

Steps :

 

1. Remove the Power on Switch 3

2. connect console cable, Power on and post the boot process.

 

i am suspecting that switch is going to on ROMMON Mode?

Hello

I know you said you’ve check the cabling but it does sound like it is your stack-wise cabling-can you post the following:

show switch stack-ports 

show switch stack-ring

Also note there is a certain way to cable the stack switches 

Example

sw1 port 2 -sw2 port 1

sw2 port 2 - sw3 port 1

sw3 port 2 sw4 port 1

sw4 port 2 sw1 port 1



kind regards
Paul
