Stack Setup Issue

Kind of a big deal

Stack Setup Issue

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.

Re: Stack Setup Issue

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.

Re: Stack Setup Issue

@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?

Re: Stack Setup Issue

@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.

Cool. Let us know in the AM. Take care.

Re: Stack Setup Issue

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.

Re: Stack Setup Issue

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.
