Stack Fail?

Hello,

 

This is a hypothetical question, 

in case of 5 stacked switches MS225 (using physical stacks) 

the third switch from the top failed (let's say power failure) 

will the remaining 2 switches below be still stacked and function properly?

 

or if a switch in the middle failed will cause the rest of the switches to get disconnected from the STACK?

 

appreciate your feedback.

Hi @ahmadtat 

 

The bottom two switches will still remain part of the stack as the bottom switch will be physically connected to the top switch of the stack.
