- Priority changes may be made only via the CLI.
- When setting management priority each switch should have a different value, i.e. no two switches in the same stack should have the same management priority value.
- When setting management priority no switch in the stack should have a setting of zero <0>. There is a potential for losing your configuration if a member that didn't have a priority set (set to zero <0>) comes up as stack manager, such as after a power failure.
- To clear priorities, depending on firmware and hardware types and revisions, either set the priority to <0>, execute " clear config all" or clear the unit back to factory defaults from the boot menu.
