In our previous entry, we had the stack issue. The stack connection dropped between two switches. This caused a major concern. Going through the Cisco documentation about stack troubleshoot. We did change the stack cable, but it did not solve the problem. Since the switch was in our data center, any troubleshoot efforts might become an issue in case of downtime.
It was decided that to resolve this issue, the best course of action would be to remove the stack. We took a downtime, and we have removed the stack wise connection. The moment we took the stack cables out. The isolated switch became stand alone switch with the current running configuration. Since, we figured that the switch should be removed from the network so that the real (master) switch and the one just removed (slave) no to cause issues in the network by having similar configurations.
