vsf member


vsf member <MEMBER-ID>

no vsf member <MEMBER-ID>


Creates VSF member context in the switch for the specified member.

The no form of this command removes the specified member from the stack. All configuration associated with the member, as well as the subsystems and interfaces of the member will also be removed.

If the member is physically present in the stack at the time it is removed, it will reboot with the default configuration and lose its identity as a member of the stack from which it was removed.


When a physically present member is removed, it may cause the stack to split.

Removing the running master should be done with caution as it can make the stack unusable if there is no standby.
