Is the process of adding a new node to a stack disruptive? Will it cause downtime?
IS it possible to downgrade the firmware on a switch to match the version in the stack?
Can you confirm that this is the correct procedure to add the new node?
1)Make sure the Summitstack cards is inserted in Slot B
2)Verify the new node is running the same ExtremeXOS software version by using the show switch command
3)Verify the new node is running on the same image (prmary or secondary) that the stack is running on using the show switch command
4)Use the enable stacking command to enable stacking
5) Type show stacking to get the node address
6)To configure a unigue slot number for the switch type configure stacking node-address (Node address from step 5) slot-number (slot number next in stack)
7)To assign the new switch as a member type the following configure stacking node-address (Node address from step 5) license-level edge
8)Connect to new switch to the stack using the stacking cable
Disconnect port 2 in the last node
Connect port 1 of the new node to port 2 of the last node
Connect port 2 of the new node to port 1 of the first node
9)type the following command on the new switch to reboot reboot
10)Log into the stack master node before entering the next command
Synchronize stacking node-address (Node address from step 5)
Reboot node-address (Node address from step 5)
11)Once the new node is rebooted type the following command to view the stack
You should see the new node listed as active
