General Stacking Operation

After you configure one switch to operate as the Commander of a stack,
additional switches can join the stack by either automatic or manual methods.
After a switch becomes a Member, you can work through the Commander
switch to further configure the Member switch as necessary for all of the
additional software features available in the switch.
The Commander switch serves as the in-band entry point for access to the
Member switches. For example, the Commander's IP address becomes the
path to all stack Members and the Commander's Manager password controls
access to all stack Members.
