Configuring CX111 stacking

The stacking function stacks a group of switches to form a single logical stack unit to increase the bandwidth and improve the reliability.
The stacked switches in the group take the following roles:
? Master switch: The master switch manages the entire stack. A stack has only one master switch. The master switch assigns IDs to stack members, collect stack topology information, and reports the topology information to all stack members.
? Standby switch: The standby switch is a backup of the master switch. A stack has only one standby switch.
When the master switch fails, the standby switch takes over all services from the master switch.
? Slave switch: A slave switch forwards service traffic. The more slave switches in a stack, the higher forwarding performance the stack can provide. Apart from the master and standby switches, all the other switches in a stack are slave switches. When detecting neighbor loss, a slave switch sends a topology change packet to the master switch.

Configure stacking for the CX111 to increase interface density and forwarding capacity for network expansion as well as facilitating user management. Follow the instructions provided in the configuration guide:
