Every time I reboot the switch stack the #3 will be elected as master. And yes I have the #1 set the highest priority.
Switch# Role Mac Address Priority Version State ---------------------------------------------------------- *1 Master 0024.9813.7c80 15 1 Ready 2 Member 18ef.63b1.9980 14 1 Ready 3 Member 18ef.63f1.b300 1 0 Ready 4 Member a8b1.d4a5.ab00 1 0 Ready 5 Member d0d0.fde5.e880 1 0 Ready 6 Member d0d0.fde5.8580 1 0 Ready
I think the problem is that the first two switches take way longer to boot up than the rest so they will miss the "master" election process and that's why they can't be elected. Is there any way to fix this? Like a command to increase the timeout for the election process?
Another question is that if #3 is elected as master, is there a way to make the #1 master again other than rebooting the #3 switch?
As far as I the know, there is no way to force reelection without a reboot, or the failure of the master switch.
BTW, the reboot should need to happen very often. Once you get switch 1 to be the primary that should be good for a long time unless there is hardware failure or IOS upgrade. 3750s are in general pretty reliable switches.
There is no command to slow down the boot process. Maybe what you can do is to turn off all the switches then turn on the master first and after few seconnd turn on the rest. This way your master boots first
We can definitely do this when we are onsite. However this is just in case (etc, upgrading firmware) that we need to reboot it remotely... If there is no better way then I guess I have to get the #3 to reboot again to yeild the master!!
