CICSO 2960x switch stack - ensure a switch never changes its stack member number.
Posted on 2016-09-07
Is it possible to ensure a switch always keeps its assigned stack member number?
I understand there is a master which is assigned 0, and each additional switch is assigned the lowest available stack number when it is added to the stack.
We have a script which automatically updates the vLAN on a port based on input to a webpage.
If the stack member number of a switch happened to change the script would begin making changes to the wrong switch – which would stuff everything up.
What for example would happen after a power failure if switch 1 & 2 failed to power-on? Would switches 3 & 4 then become 1 & 2.
