The first switch in a stack of four needs to be replaced. The switches are using 3com stacking cables and one ip address to access the stack. We have a an extra switch. Is it a matter of just restoring the backup from the switch in the stack that is going to be replaced to the new switch and plugging the yellow and blue stacking cables from the old switch into the back of the new switch and powering on?  Will I have to set the unit number or will that pull from the config restore?

Thank you for your help
