Removing a Member or the Standby

  1. Establish a console session with the stack via direct console cable connection or telnet. If using the console cable, connect it to the Standby.

  2. Enter the following command to remove the switch from the stack:

    switch(config)# stacking member N remove

    This causes the switch to lose its complete configuration and to be removed from the stack configuration. A subsequent show stacking command issued to the stack will show that the removed switch no longer exists in the stack.

  3. Power down the removed switch.

  4. Disconnect the stacking cables from the removed switch and from the other switches in the stack.
