To clear the stack configuration of a CE8800/CE7800/CE6800/CE5800 series switch, you can run commands to delete stack-related configurations one by one, and then set the stack member ID to 1 and restart the switch. If you do not need to retain other service configurations, you can also clear the configuration file specified for the next startup and restart the switch.

How to upgrade a stack of CE switches
A stack can be upgraded using the traditional upgrade method (specify the next-startup files and restart the entire stack) or the fast upgrade function. The fast upgrade function applies to a stack with two member switches. 

Stack restart:

1. Upload the new system software to the master switch and copy it to all other member switches. If the switch has multiple MPUs, you also need to copy the system software to all MPUs.
2. Run the startup system-software system-file all command to specify the system software file name for the next startup.
3. Run the reboot command to restart the stack.

2. Run the startup system-software system-file all command to specify the system software file name for the next startup.
3. Run the system-view command to enter the system view.
4. Run the stack command to enter the stack management view.
5. Run the stack upgrade fast command to start a fast upgrade.
After performing a fast upgrade, you can run the display stack upgrade status command to check the upgrade status.
