Newbie: how to assign master switch without rebooting?

Hi,

Sometime ago, we installed 2 x 3750 switches connected by stackwise cable. I followed the instruction to boot up Switch A first and after 20 seconds Switch B.

Then I configured an IP address to the stack.

Then one day, there was a prolonged power outage. When power finally came back up, Switch B became the master instead of Switch A.

Is there a way to assign Switch A to be the Master without rebooting them again?

Hello John,

the stack master cannot be preempted, that is, once the stack master is elected, a new master election can only be forced by resetting/reloading the current master.

Regards,

GNT
