Cluster members

I would like to know how the cluster member command works.  If my switch has 15 cluster members would the command "cluster member 16 mac-address 000.0000.0000.0001" add to the group, or would I have to copy the the group to notepad add the line "cluster member 16 mac-address 000.0000.0000.0001" and paste all 16 lines back into the switch, like how the access-list command works?

You can download Cisco Network Assistant from CISCO website. It's a free and very powerful tool. You can use it to configure your switches and monitor them. It will be easier using this application than you input the CLI command. But you need to register in CISCO website to get access to this file. The CNA product information is from the following link:

Thank you fortunegrace, but that is not what I was asking.  I wanted to input the command.

well....if that is the case....you will need to find out what the other 15 switch MAC addresses are and use the command: cluster member [n] mac-address xxxx.xxxx.xxxx [password enable-password] [vland vlan-id] to add them to be the cluster members.
example:
cluster member 2 mac-address 00E0.1E00.2222 password key vlan 3
0
Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

Hi Fortunegrace,

Thank you for the reply; however, if I already have 15 switches in the cluster membership, can I just add another line for the 16th, or will doing that remover the other 15, and I then I will have to add them back in one line at a time?

Thanks,
Sydney

you can just add the new one from your command switch. No need to remove the other 15 members.
