Clusters or stacks of S series switches
A stack or cluster of S series switches is a logical switch consisting of multiple stacking-capable or clustering-capable S series switches. In V200R001C00 and earlier versions, S series switches only set up stacks. In later versions, S series fixed switches set up stacks, and S series modular switches set up clusters. Please ask questions about specific switch models. The following information is possibly related to your question:

Whether the configuration of an S series fixed switch stack changes after the stack splits
After a stack is set up, all stack member switches function as one switch on a network. The configuration of the stack is the configuration of the master switch, which is synchronized to the standby switch by the master switch. If a fault occurs on the master switch and the master switch restarts, the standby switch does not restart and function as the master switch. That is, the configuration of the stack does not change.

Whether the observing port and the mirroring port of the S-series switch need to be added to the same VLAN
For S-series switches, mirroring ports and observing ports do not need to be added to the same VLAN when configuring port mirroring. You can run command observe-port to forward mirrored traffic to the local or remote, do not need to add observe the port the VLAN.

How to delete an observing port on S series switches
For S series switches (except S1700 switches), perform the following configurations to delete an observing port: 1. Delete the binding between the observing port and mirrored port. - Port mirroring [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet x/x/x [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] undo port-mirroring to observe-port x inbound/outbound/both [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] quit - MQC-based traffic mirroring a. Delete the traffic policy applied to the system, a VLAN, or an interface. In the following example, a traffic policy applied to an interface is deleted. [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet x/x/x [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] undo traffic-policy inbound/outbound [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] quit b. Delete the traffic policy in the system view. [HUAWEI] undo traffic policy xxx c. Delete the traffic behavior containing the traffic mirroring action in the system view. [HUAWEI] undo traffic behavior xxx - ACL-based traffic mirroring Delete ACL-based traffic mirroring configured in the system or interface view. In the following example, ACL-based traffic mirroring is deleted in the system view. [HUAWEI] interface gigabitethernet x/x/x [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] undo traffic-mirror inbound acl xxx [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernetx/x/x] quit - VLAN mirroring [HUAWEI] vlan xxx [HUAWEI-vlanxxx] undo mirroring inbound [HUAWEI-vlanxxx] quit - MAC address mirroring [HUAWEI] vlan xxx [HUAWEI-vlanxxx] undo mac-mirroring xxx inbound [HUAWEI-vlanxxx] quit 2. Delete the observing port configuration in the system view. [HUAWEI] undo observe-port x
