Misconfiguration recovery

If a switch fails to join the stack because of misconfiguration, the switch can be restored back to a factory default configuration.


The user must have management connectivity to the failed member for support files from the member in recovery mode.

  1. Press Ctrl+C on the switch console.
  2. Log in using administrator credentials.
  3. At the prompt, issue the vsf-factory-reset command.
    Login: admin
    recovery# vsf-factory-reset
  4. This resets the member to factory-default settings and the switch will come up with a default member ID of 1.
  5. Now the user can reconfigure the VSF link and renumber it to the preferred member ID.
