Activate an ArubaStack

Question: How to activates the ArubaStack on Mobility Access Switch

 

Environment: Multiple Switch in a single Stack

 

To activates the ArubaStack and runs the distributed election algorithm on all local ArubaStack members. Use the following command,

 
(ArubaS2500-24P) #set stacking activate
 
Member-id: 0
------------
Stack already active
 
Member-id: 1
------------
Stack already active
 
Only currently connected members are considered in the election algorithm. Any previous ArubaStack members, which are no longer connected, are “forgotten” by the current members of the ArubaStack.

 

(LC-1) #show stacking members

Stack status: Inactive, Stack Id: 001a1e090a8053ca7f36
Id Role MAC Address Priority State Model Serial
-- ---- ----------- -------- ----- ----- ------
0 Unknown 00:1a:1e:09:0a:80 128 Away ArubaS2500-24P BJ0001240
1 * Linecard 00:1a:1e:09:92:00 128 Dormant [S] ArubaS2500-48P BL0001039 <-- Initially this Switch was part of Stack and once we removed it from the stacking, it will became as a Line card and goes in to Dormant State(Split).

[S] - Split
[V] - Version Mismatch
[D] - Depleted Slots
[C] - Preset Configuration Mismatch
