Resetting Switch 2 of a former 3850 Stack - Help needed

Cormac Champion
Beginner
Beginner

I have broken a 2 switch stack and now they are two individual units.  But switch 2 still appears to be a switch 2 with interfaces Gi2/0/xx.  If I use the no switch 2 provision ws-c3850-24p command, I get "Error: A switch is already physically present at this location".

How can I reset this switch back to a standalone switch without it needing to be re-connected to the original switch 1 (which I don't have access to)

Thanks in advance

should be able to do the renumber as standalone, we have to do it on any we pull out of a stack. I believe you do it in enable, but not config t.

 


Test#show switch
Switch/Stack Mac Address : b090.7e1b.8d80 - Local Mac Address
Mac persistency wait time: Indefinite
H/W Current
Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
*1 Active b090.7e1b.8d80 1 V02 Ready

 

Test#sw
Test#switch 1 ren
Test#switch 1 renumber ?
<1-16> New number of the Switch

Test#switch 1 renumber 2

What firmware is the stack running on? 

I am trying to determine if this is a hardware issue or a software bug. 

If the stack is cabled with two stacking cables, the theory about a hardware issue is out the door.
