Removing a Member or the Standby

  1. Establish a console session with the stack using a direct console cable connection or telnet [or equivalent command-line tool]. If using the console cable, connect it to the Standby.

  2. Enter the following command to remove the switch from the stack: switch(config)# stacking member <n> remove This causes the switch to lose its complete configuration and be removed from the stack configuration. A subsequent show stacking command issued to the stack will show that the removed switch no longer exists in the stack.

  3. Power down the removed switch.

  4. Disconnect the stacking cables from the removed switch and from the other switches in the stack.
