Swapping stacking ports without blowing away config

Swapping stacking ports without blowing away config

New Contributor II
I've currently got 5 X450-G2's in a daisy chain stack (Bad I know) using the front 10GB ports.

I've got the SFP passive cables for the "S1/2" ports on the back of the switch but I wanted to know if there's any easy way of swapping the stacking ports without having to rebuild the stack?

I'll be swapping to a ring topology, will give it a go this weekend. Thanks for the advice
