Cisco 3750 Switch Stack

Hi All,

Just wanted to know what would happen when a stack member is disconnected from the stack, for example to due to a stack cable failure.

Lets say the stack has 3 members and the switch 3 (not a master) disconnected from the rest of the stack. I'm guessing this will split the network into two and each segment will be able to communicate with devices on that segment. What will happen to a server that's on an LACP trunk connecting to switch 2 and switch 3? Will the entire stack reboot once switch 3 is reconnected to the stack?

 

Appreciate your help

Many Thanks

Ranil

(Hopefully) that's unlikely, but if it happens (or you didn't have dual connections to begin with), stack will segment.  Each segmented stack will believe its the stack.  Impact would be "messy" as you would have two "duplicate" devices on the network.

If the stack is dual connected, as it should be, the remaining stack members won't segment and will continue to function.  Your port-channel will continue to function.

If the switch is re-added to the stack, it will just rejoin the stack.

Thanks Joseph.The stack is

Thanks Joseph.

The stack is dual connected. I was thinking of a situation where both stackwise cables failing on a switch.
