    Hello DhanushkaH,

    P.S. Maybe it is good idea to shut down the secondary switch and work on the primary switch with password recovery. Also as the startup config maybe saved without secodary switch config setting when loaded after restart it is good to have display the startup before doing any modification and copy the configuration with the settings of the ports on the secondary switch to preserve it. When the configuration is saved with only one switch may load the config without settings for the missing switch as it is new boot without IRF.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks Alex

    This is very helpful. But how can I do this process within the IRF Cluster ? Can we do that follow up this process or need to follow another method

    Hello DhanushkaH,

    It is important to check the config before saving it and verify if the saved configuration has all interfaces from both devices.
    If not you can copy and then paste the config of the ports of the secondary switch when you rebuild the IRF.
    In any case you need the full configuration copy with both devices to restore if needed.

    Hope this helps!
