Remove ERS (5900) switch from stack

Remove ERS (5900) switch from stack

New Contributor II
I have a stack of 3 5900 switches. I only need 2. I have moved the cables to the 2 switches, and would like to remove the 3rd switch. It is not a base switch. FW:, SW:

I have found articles on how to add, and replace switches in stacks, but not remove.

I presume I disconnect the connecting cables in the back, and just leave two switches connected. Can I do this live (i.e. powered on)? Or should I power the stack off, disconnect switch 3, and power the stack back up?

I presume the same scenario would apply to the 4900's and 4800's.

Thanks for the help.
