I need to remove a configured 3750g out of a 7 unit stack. I want to replace it with another unit that is the same. How to keep the config correct an get the unit into the stack.
OK... It's not quite clear what you're aiming to do.. if you want to just swap a switch out like-for-like then just do it (with the stack powered up).
If you pull out the switch you want to replace, when you do show 'show switch' you will see the switch listed as 'provisioned' I think.
At this point, you can do one of a few things:
1) If you just want to swap out a switch (i.e. the current one if defective) then put in the replacement. It *SHOULD* come up in place of the existing one. If not check the switch is the same type/port count as before... if it comes up as switch 8, you may be able to enter 'switch 8 renumber x' where x is the old switch number to get it back the way it was before...
2) If you are trying to get rid of the old configuration, and install a switch with blank config or install a different kind of switch, then you can enter:
no switch x provision
Where x is the switch number, this will remove the old config.
Put in the new switch, and it should add to the stack as a new one... If you want to change the number of the switch you can use:
switch 7 renumber 4
This would make switch 7 switch 4 after a reboot forced by using :
reload slot 7
Hope this helps...
