Cisco 2960X Stack Priority

Hello,

I'm configuring a few stacks of 2960X's and concerning stack priority, what would be the idle way to configure this?  Would it make sense to have switch priority configured for each one, only the master, or only the master and a backup master?  For example, if I configured it like this I would how exactly how it would behave in case of failure of any switch:

Switch 1 priority 20 (master)

Switch 2 priority 15 (member, backup master)

Switch 3 priority 10 (member)

Switch 4 priority 5 (member)

Thanks!

Hi,

It is easier to know what switch has what role if you configure priority for each switch. The highest priority is 15.

Switch 1 priority 15 (master)

Switch 2 priority 12 (member)

Switch 3 priority 10 (member)

Switch 4 priority 5 (member)

Hello

 

how you have  posted is absolutely fine otherwise if you only state a master and backup if both go down then and election will take place of the remainng switches - also if you need to replace a switch with the broken ones the new switch will have a default priority of 1 and will also tray to become masters and could potentiialy wipe you running config with its default config -So how you have posted is good
