Making a switch a Commander (CLI)


stack commander <name-str>

Assigns a stack name to a switch, makes it a Commander and automatically creates a stack.

Creating a Commander switch

To create a Commander switch with a stack name of Big_Waters:
switch(config)# stack commander Big_Waters

If stacking was previously disabled on the switch, this command also enables stacking.

As the following show stack display shows, the Commander switch is now ready to add members to the stack.
