Troubleshooting installation and deployment issues


Installation and deployment issues include the initial deployment or creation of a stack, adding additional members or removing members from a stack.


When using the Deterministic method, one or more of the statically provisioned members did not join the stack.

Possible reasons a switch does not join a stack are:
  • The switch being added is already a member of another stack and has a different stack ID.

  • The maximum number of switches is already configured.

  • The switch being added has been statically provisioned. The MAC address matches, but the switch type does not.

  • There is a problem with the stack cable.

  • The stack cables are connected in a way that creates an unsupported topology.

  • Stack module failure.
