Stack Config - Switch Provisioning

HI,

Where does the following command gets entered? 

switch
 stack-member-number provision type
e.g : switch 3 provision ws3750g-24t

I have a switch already running, I am now adding another switch same model and IOS version and will setup a stack.

What I am wondering is, where does the provision command apply? Master or the new switch i am going to add?
What are the effects of adding or not adding the above command?

Because my understanding is, i can just match the IOS number and set the switch priority as i want and then just plug the stack cables and power on the second switch to make a stack working. The number with highest priority will become the stack Master and hence have the ports as 1/x/x and the second switch will become the slave and have the ports as 2/x/x. 

Thanks

Basically what you are dong is joining two standalone switch's to become a stack, in that case suggest:

1- active switch
switch 1 priority 15
switch 2 provision xxxx

 

2- new switch
switch 1 priority 1

save and shutdown

3 - add new switch to active switch via stack cables and power on new switch

Depends on the platform. 

Classic IOS, in configuration mode. 

For IOS-XE, in enable mode.
