With VSF the members do not become a standby nor master/conductor switch.
Only a (assigned) stand-by VSF member will takeover the master/conductor roleVSF Behavior : (from the AOS-CX VSF guide)- Each stack member must have a unique member number. When deploying a stack, ensure that eachmember has a distinct number by renumbering the switches to the appropriate member numbers. Stackformation will fail if there is a member number conflict.- The primary member will become Master and the secondary member will become Standby under normalcircumstances.- The primary member is member number 1. This setting is not configurable and 1 is the default. A factorydefault switch boots up as a VSF-enabled switch with a member number of 1.- The secondary member number is user configurable, and there is no default secondary member. It isrecommended that the customer configures a secondary member in the stack, since a stack with astandby offers resiliency and high-availability.- No members other than primary and secondary members can become Master or Standby of the stack.
It should state, : Conductor and Standby, as in your second ring..Then it is correct, somwhat unclear what happens if left as now: Conductor & Member, and the conductor failsmember state is not the same as Standby or Conductor state.If you ad more "members" to the ring's, they will be members.
