MS225 Stack Replacement

MS225 Stack Replacement

I have received switch replacements for the fan issue and need to replace complete stacks.  While I see I can do one at a time, I'd just like to pull the entire stack of 2, 3 or 4 switches at once and replace them all at once.  Can I do that or is it just once at a time?

Re: MS225 Stack Replacement

You can do them all at once. Do you have a specific concern about doing them all at once?

No concern.  I was just checking that I could do them all at once.

Yeah you can do them all at once. I would suggest configuring them and setting them up on a bench before hand so they can do firmware upgrades and download config settings before hand. That will only mean a little less downtime when you are doing the physical swap.

I also have two switches to RMA for this same thing. However mine are not stacked so I was planning on doing it via the cloning method (never done before).

Re: MS225 Stack Replacement

No 1 thing I say is allow the device to upgrade its firmware to the network equivalent and let it sit for at least 20 minutes.

 

Here to help

Re: MS225 Stack Replacement

Sorry for the thread hijack. Is there anything bad that would happen if I cloned the switches during production time? I have two stacks of three switches each, and if I can save myself some maintenance time by cloning ahead of time, that'd be great. I don't want to clone early and bring down the network during a non-maintenance window, though.


Thanks!

cloning is no problem, the IP-Addresses will not be cloned, so there should be no impact to the network.
