Disable stackwise - 3750

Can someone please help me disable the stackwise config in a 3750 switch. I have removed the switch from a stackwise configuration and need it as a standalone.

When I run the command...

no switch [#] provision

...I get the error...

%IDBs can not be removed when switch is active.

I see some documentation that mentioned renumbering the switch. However, once I renumber it I get the same error.


version 12.2

no service pad

service timestamps debug uptime

service timestamps log uptime

no service password-encryption


hostname Switch


no aaa new-model

switch 1 provision ws-c3750-48p


I am starting to wonder if it is even possible to remove the default switch 1 config when you have stackwise ports??? Any ideas? Thanks!!!

Re: Disable stackwise - 3750

I don't have one in front of me to confirm, but I believe this is default config. Do a show switch and if only one switch exist, you can't remove it.

If you do a switch 2 provision (model), then do a show run, you will be able to provision the ports that don't exist until the switch is phyically connected.

hope this helps,
