New to Meraki. Cisco CLI guy 🙂
I have a 3 switch stack and when looking at the dashboard it is displayed as the attached. Is there a way I can amend the layout so it shows 201 at top, 202 in middle, 203 at bottom. This is how they are racked and stacking cables connected in relation to that also. My dashboard image shows 203, 201, 202 in that order but that isn't physically how they are. Is this just cosmetic? Doesn't seem to be a role such as stack master etc.. compared to Cisco stacking, or switch numbers. Not that I can see anyways.
I would just prefer for switch 201 to be listed first, especially when going into "configure switch ports" for the stack as currently the ports begin
Hopefully that makes sense.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Just had a thought and will check it out later. It may list the stack in that dashboard area in order of their IP address. Lowest IP first and so forth. I had to move a switch to this stack and that has a lower IP address which is why it may show at top. I usually keep them sequential if I can. Not sure if anyone is able to test this in a lab? I think this is it though
dumb question but is the pre 201-03 text the same ? As in the part you have marked out on the screeshot is it the same, example switch 201, switch 202 switch 203? I always start with the simple things then work harder
Hi C Miller,
Yes Pretext exactly the same. I had just blanked those out to respect the company tbh, no other reason, but everything is the same apart from the numbers. The 203 has the lowest IP so i do think this is it. Not tested yet though.
Looks like the order of the switches is determined by MAC address, and not a whole lot a person can do other than make sure they are in the desired physical order in the rack (paying attention to the MAC when racking). Is this correct? I'm trying to reorder in the switch dashboard, myself.
