If you don't know the MAC address of the destination Commander, you can
use show stack all to identify it.
For example, suppose you have a switch operating as the Commander for a
temporary stack named "Test". When it is time to eliminate the temporary
"Test" stack and convert the switch into a member of an existing stack named
"Big_Waters", you would execute the following commands in the switch's CLI:
Using the CLI To Remove a Member from a Stack
You can remove a Member from a stack using the CLI of either the Commander
or the Member.
When you remove a Member from a stack, the Member's Auto Join parameter
is set to No.
Using the Commander CLI To Remove a Stack Member. This option
requires the switch number (SN) and the MAC address of the switch to
remove. (Because the Commander propagates its Manager password to all
stack members, knowing the Manager password is necessary only for gaining
access to the Commander.)
[no] stack member <switch-num> mac-address <mac-addr>
Eliminates the "Test" stack and converts
the Commander to a Candidate.
Helps you to identify the MAC address of the
Commander for the "Big_Waters" stack.
Adds the former "Test" Commander to the
