Switch/Stack Mac Address : 50f7.226a.fb80 - Local Mac Address
Mac persistency wait time: Indefinite
H/W Current
Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State

3 Standby 50f7.2297.5500 1 V02 Ready

Hi Leo,

 

thanks for your reply. One more query i am having.

 

While inserting new member(in powered off state) to existing stack(in powered on state), when we remove stack cable from switch 1 and 4 (because we need to insert stack cable from switch 4 to 5),

any impact on current stack?

Also can you share any useful link.

 

thanks in advance.

stack cables should be connected  from ports 2 of first switch to port 1 of second switch,again port 2 of that switch to port 1 of next switch, like wise all switches,switch number 4 second port should be connected to 1st port of first switch with a big cable.

after doing steps given by leo power on it ,This will add to stack
