Member provisioning

VSF allows the user to provision or pre-configure any member before the member is physically added to the stack. Provisioning the member allows the user to complete the required configuration as if the member is present in the stack. When the member eventually joins the stack, it will boot up with the configuration made on the pre-provisioned interfaces.

To provision a member, the part number of the member must be specified. Refer to type for information about provisioning a member.


If a member tries to join the stack with a different part number to the one provisioned on the Master, the member will be removed from the stack and will reboot with factory defaults.
