Have created a stack with a SG500-52P 52-Port Gigabit PoE Stackable Managed Switch and a SG500-28P 28-Port Gigabit PoE Stackable Managed Switch.
All seems fine, but my query is the SG500-52P 52-Port Gigabit PoE Stackable Managed Switch is showing has Master and the SG500-28P 28-Port Gigabit PoE Stackable Managed Switch is showing as a Backup, should this be a Slave? Have a got the link cable wrong?
In an SG500 stack, there are three roles: master, backup and slave. The master currently holds the management role of the stack. The backup is the switch that will take over the management role if the master fails. Slaves are remaining stack members. As long as the master is active, the backup will essentially function as a slave.
If you only have two switches, there will be a master and a backup with no slaves at all.
