Member number

To add a device to a VSF stack, the device must be renumbered to the corresponding member ID. The user can specify the member number of the switch. The default member number is 1.

For the 6200F device, the default number can be changed to any value from 2 through 8. (The device supports up to 8 members.)

For 6300 devices, the default number can be changed to any value from 2 through 10. (The device supports up to 10 members.)

Refer to vsf renumber-to and Misconfiguration recovery for information about renumbering a member.

NOTE:

Changing the member number causes the switch to reboot and all configuration on the switch is removed.

A switch with a member number other than 1 cannot boot completely unless it has reachability to a VSF master switch via VSF link. If a renumbered member is unable to communicate with the master switch and is waiting in booting state, the user can:
  • Go to a recovery console with a ctrl+c sequence and collect the diagnostic information, or

  • Reset the VSF configuration.
