Power On Sequence for Switch Stacks

Consider these guidelines before you power on the switches in a stack:
For conditions that can cause a stack master re-election or to manually elect the stack master, see the
"Managing Switch Stacks" chapter in the switch software configuration guide on Cisco.com.

The sequence in which the switches are first powered on might affect the switch that becomes the
stack master.
If you want a particular switch to become the stack master, power on that switch first. This switch
becomes the stack master and remains the stack master until a master re-election is required. After
1 minute, power on the other switches in the stack.
If you have no preference as to which switch becomes the stack master, power on all the switches in
the stack within a 1-minute timeframe. These switches participate in the stack master election.
Switches powered on after the 1-minute timeframe do not participate in the election.
Power off a switch before you add it to or remove it from an existing switch stack.
