Switch Clustering

Trying to set a switch as the member of a cluster but I keep getting the serror "This command runs only the command switch"

cluster member 3 mac-address H.H.H

Makes no sense to me.

Anyone?

A cluster can only have one command switch. The command you are trying to use can only be entered on the command switch and you are trying to enter it on a cluster member. To see the command switch type "sh cluster" on the memeber switch and it will tell you which switch is the command switch -

2950  sh cluster  command

then logon on to the command switch and enter the command there.

Re: Switch Clustering

Don't run the command from the member.  Run the command from the master.  Here's the following sequence:

1.  On the switch master, run the command in enable mode:  cluster enable
2.  Exit out and run the command "sh cluster candidate".
3.  Then go back to enable mode and enter the command "cluster member mac password [vlan ]"

Hope this helps.
