Each member switch needs to restart only once to set up a stack. Perform the following operations in sequence:
Complete the stack configuration of the active switch, save the configuration, and then restart the switch.
Complete the stack configuration of the standby switch, save the configuration, and then power off the switch.
Connect the active and standby switches using stack cables, and then power on the standby switch.
