This command disables the stacking on one or all nodes in the stack topology.
Specifies the MAC address of a node in the stack. To view the MAC addresses for all nodes in a stack, enter the show stacking command.
Default value is stacking disabled.
If you do not specify the node-address, stacking is disabled on all nodes in the stack topology.
If the node-address parameter is present, stacking is disabled on the node with the specified node-address. This is the MAC address assigned to the stackable by the factory.
A node in the stack topology that is disabled for stacking does not forward the customer's data through its stacking links and does not become a member of the active topology.
A disabled node becomes its own master and processes and executes its own configuration independently.
When this command is executed successfully, the following message appears:This command will take effect at the next reboot of the specified node(s).
Use show stacking configuration command to see the current configuration of the stack. Verify the flags in show stacking configuration output to confirm that stacking is disabled on the specified node(s).
The following example disables stacking on an 8 node stack:
* Switch.3 # disable stacking This command will take effect at the next reboot of the specified node(s).
The following example disables stacking on the node with the factory assigned MAC address 00:04:96:26:6b:ed:
* Switch.3 # disable stacking node-address 00:04:96:26:6b:ed This command will take effect at the next reboot of the specified node(s).
