Synchronizing Nodes

Before synchronizing nodes on a SummitStack, review the following list to confirm that your switches are running software that supports the synchronize command:

On a SummitStack with redundancy, you can take the primary node configurations and images and replicate them on the backup node using the save configuration command.



During a synchronization on a SummitStack, the active stack briefly alternates between a ring and daisy-chain topology. When the primary node finishes replicating its configurations and images to the backup node, the full the stack ring is restored.

In addition to replicating the configuration settings and images, this command also replicates which configuration or image the node should use on subsequent reboots. This command does not replicate the run-time configuration. You must use the save configuration command to store the run-time configuration first.

On a SummitStack, you can synchronize an active node in the stack with the master node using the following command:

synchronize {slot slotid}
