I added a switch to a stack this weekend. This is the 6th switch, but it's physically located above the 1st switch in the rack. I'd like to renumber these. I know that I can do "switch 6 renumber 1", but I don't think that will work as long as 1 exists when the newly renumbered 6 comes online. Do I need to shut down the stack completely, bring up all of the switches one by one and renumber? What's the best way to go about doing this?
In the end, what I'll need is this:
6 renumbered to 1
1 renumbered to 2
2 " to 3
3 " to 4
4 " to 5
5 " to 6
I'd also like to know if this will negatively impact me in anyway with existing VLANs, trunked ports, etc.
