Stacking 6610



I have a switch 6610 configured on the network and want to stack with a second switch 6610  that is not configured.
I can add that second switch without losing any configuration of the first?

Hi Rafael,


What you are after here is automatic stack configuration. With this method, you enter all configuration information, including the module type and the priorities of all members into the unit you decide will be the active controller and set its priority to be the highest.


When you enable stacking on the active controller, the stack then forms automatically. This method requires that you start with clean units (except for the active controller) that do not contain startup or running configurations, which is already the case with your second 6610.


You may refer to the links below for further information

Hope this helps addressing your concerns.
