Disabling smart install on 3750 stack switch

Vstack Director IP address: 0.0.0.0

No IP address for VStack so this means VStack is not configured or enabled.  Post the output to the commnand "sh run | i vstack".  If there are no output, then VStack is not really enabled.

Re: Disabling smart install on 3750 stack switch

Smart Install is enabled default, so you do not see any config for that!

sh vstack config

-> you see

Role: Client
 Vstack Director IP address: 0.0.0.0

 

I have the problem on some switches to disable it with

no vstack

command because the switch does know this command but "sh vstack config" shows the role "client"

Switch: WS-C2960G-48TC-L

Software: Version 12.2(52)SE

 

Can some one tell me how I can disable Smart Install on this switch?
