3com 5500 switch stack


I have a 3com 5500 switch stack with 5 switches, our main switch died today and we replaced it with a second switch. This switch has the fiber for the input from our MDF. For some reason this switch is pulling 6 as a number rather than 2 (the one that went down) how would I fix this?
1 Solution
There are two ways to fix this:

To change the unit ID of the current Switch to 2, enter the following:
System View: return to User View with Ctrl+Z.
[SW5500] change self-unit to 2
Unit %d saved unit ID successfully.


To change the unit ID from 6 to 2, enter the following:
<SW5500>display xrn-fabric
Fabric name is SW5500, system mode is L3.
... output omited

[SW5500]change unit-id 6 to 2
Unit %d saved unit ID successfully.
