3750 Switch stack question

Answered Question

Hi,


I have just removed a 3750 from an existing stack and want to use it as the first switch in a new stack.  I've cleared the config and the VLAN Db, but the switch number still appeard as 9.  I tried to renumber the switch using the command


switch current-stack-member-number renumber new-stack-member-number


However after that when I run the sh switch command it shows the following


Switch#  Role   Mac Address     Priority Version  State
----------------------------------------------------------
*1       Master 00xx.xxxx.xxxx     15     0       Ready
9       Member 0000.0000.0000     0      0       Provisioned


(Mac address changed)


Even though the switch is not currently connected to anything else?


What have I done wrong?

Hi Dave,


Just to be clear, this is a standalone switch right now and is not connected to any other switch in a new stack?If yes, did you try resetting it using command " reload slot "


You cannot use the switch current-stack-member-number renumber new-stack-member-number global configuration command on a provisioned switch. If you do, the  command is rejected.


If you remove a provisioned switch from the switch  stack, the configuration associated with the removed stack member  remains in the running configuration as provisioned information. To  completely remove the configuration, use the no switch stack-member-number provision global  configuration command.


Please have a look at the below link on managing switch stacks:

Thanks Amit,


The no switch stack-member-number provision did the trick.
