This is planning to setup 3 cisco catalyst 3850-48p with 3 NM (10g). After connecting the required cables, what would be next to configure the stack power? I know that I can choose between power-sharing and redundant, btw, which one is more suitable? Any step-by-step guides?

thanks,

It entirely depends on how many PSUs, what size they are, and what your requirements are in terms of redundancy.  Also, PoE requirements are to be considered.

Here's a link for configuring StackPower: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst3850/software/release/3e/consolidated_guide/configuration_guide/b_consolidated_3850_3e_cg/b_consolidated_3850_3e_cg_chapter_0110001.pdf  It contains a nice overview of the different modes on page 3, and all the relevant configs required.

Thanks Otto, at the end "sharing" mode was chosen.
