ExtremeSwitching (EXOS)

  • 1.  Re-arranging stack order

    Posted 09-01-2014 13:10
    I have a few stacks consisting of up to six X440-48p in a remote location that I need to configure. They are running with ExtremeXOS and have a default script installed that activates stacking in auto mode, e.g.

    configure stacking protocol standard
    configure stacking priority 90
    configure stacking slot-number automatic
    enable stacking

    A reboot is also included at the end of the default script. Now, with that config, after an "unconfigure switch all" all switches in the stack will be re-initalized and load the default config. This is fine, except for the fact that the slot numbers will be randomized. Assuming that I have someone to connect me to the current master: Can I re-number the switches to the order I want to have with

    configure stacking slot 1 priority 50
    configure stacking slot 2 priority 70
    configure stacking slot 3 priority 90
    configure stacking slot 4 priority 80
    configure stacking slot 5 priority 40
    configure stacking slot 6 priority 60

    or do the new priority settings have no effect once a stack was formed? Alternatively, when does a

    configure stacking node-address 00:04:96?cd:ef slot-number 3

    take effect? Immediately or after a reboot? I want to get this sorted out with as less help from local staff as possible, any input is appreciated.

    configure stacking node-address 00:04:96?cd:ef slot-number 3

    Configure above command to manually configure slot number. This command will take effect after rebooting that specific slot using command "reboot node-address 00:04:96?cd:ef"
