So I have setup stacking on the two MS435-32 that I have, stacking ports are green and connected as recommended in the kBase article but I am having issues. The second unit is reporting it has no stack configuration.
I've seen this a couple times in my own lab and it tended to clear up but took a little while, and I wasn't able to replicate it consistently, and might have tried different things in a different order. Maybe hold off a bit before you start doing reboots or temporary re-cabling. In my case, they actually were in a proper stack and functioning as such, and it seemed to be a cosmetic alert message in Dashboard, but didn't persist for very long.
@BlakeRichardsonWhat have you tried so I'm not repeating to you what you already did lol. Also keeping it simple did you re-configure the stack and just for giggles swapped the cables 1-2 move 2-1? Will it still go amber?
@kYutobi I haven't re-configured the stack or swapped cables around, the only thing I have done it reboot the affected switch. I'll give it a few hours and report back tomorrow if its cleared up.
@MerakiDave Thanks for the info, what models of switch have you seen this on, I wonder if its related to the type of stacking.
I've often had to wait at least 30 minutes for this to resolve. Very rarely I have had to factory a switch member then to get it to stack.
We tend to do the switches the day beforehand because of this.
I agree with PhilipDAth,
it needs a long time. And rarely it needs a reset. If the reset doesn´t work it helped to remove the switch from the network and put it in again.
And to build in @MerakiDave reponse:
"In my case, they actually were in a proper stack and functioning as such, and it seemed to be a cosmetic alert message in Dashboard, but didn't persist for very long."
My experience has been the same. The switches are actually correctly stacked (and working as a stack), and it is only the Dashboard not reporting it correctly.
