Cisco 3850 stack member 1 current state stuck on syncing and stack member 2 stuck at sync not started.

Its a ws-c3850-48t

My member 4 and 3 are stuck at syncing after power outage. 

Why is the config not syncing?

Tried reloading and unplugging the cables.

Should I remove the stack member ? Then plug the cable back in?

Something like: https://vmguru.com/2010/03/hot-adding-or-removing-a-cisco-3750-from-a-stack/

I am sorry I am new to this.

Re: Cisco 3850 stack member 1 current state stuck on syncing and stack member 2 stuck at sync not started.

This has been resolved.

Finally we rebooted the entire stack. 

And it fixed the issue.

 

I tried bring the members online one by one but that didn't help, I started seeing switch3 error in the logs.

Finally after reload of entire stack fixed the issues.

I really feel awesome about this community that will come together to help a newbie.

Thank you everyone.

Re: Cisco 3850 stack member 1 current state stuck on syncing and stack member 2 stuck at sync not started.

 

looks like 3 is stuck on something.  How did u turn 3 and 4 on? both at the same time or 3 then 4?  try power on 3 only, 4 is off. to see what happens. if not good, turn 4 while 3 is off.

 

right now u can console to 3 only to see what;s going on.  if u cannot , see sw 1 loggs ( i think show log | in STACK  would help u limit output).  either switch should give u some log error/message. 

if sw 3 is in switch mode (rommon mode), then type boot to start booting

connections look good, cables should be ok unless u think some1 damaged them.

Re: Cisco 3850 stack member 1 current state stuck on syncing and stack member 2 stuck at sync not started.

Thank you for the response.

I don't see much info related to stack manager.

I see the switch getting removed and getting back online and shows as ready in the logs.

Because I reloaded the members one by one.

Most likely to be a firmware bug.  I'd upgrade the stack to a more recent version.

Re: Cisco 3850 stack member 1 current state stuck on syncing and stack member 2 stuck at sync not started.

I have seen this kind of issue. 

 

you have priority set all to 1, so whoever comes first the elect as master

 

if downtime is acceptable, i will pull all the device power, and start bringing up one by one from master/standby / member /member

 

once stack boots up correctly and working, when you get another chance, change the priory of the switch

 

master 10

standby 9

member 1

member 1

Good to know; you still need to fix priority #s or this may happen next time; I would go by MACs and make Top switch #1 as Master, 2nd from the top "backup"
I think commands are sw 1 priority 15, sw 2 priority 10 , then your output should look like:
*1 Active 5006.ab36.XXXX 15 V06 Ready
2 Standby 9c57.add0.XXXX 10 V06 Ready
