Managing a Candidate switch (Menu)

Perform these actions on a Candidate switch:
  • Add (push) the Candidate into an existing stack.

  • Modify the Candidate's stacking configuration (Auto Join and Transmission Interval).

  • Convert the Candidate to a Commander.

  • Disable stacking on the Candidate so that it operates as a standalone switch.

In its default stacking configuration, a Candidate switch can either automatically join a stack or be manually added (pulled) into a stack by a Commander, depending on the Commander's Auto Grab setting. The following table lists the Candidate's configuration options:
