n-corp-sw#stack unconfigure clean
This command is not available on standalone or Active Controller
alone: standalone, D: dynamic config, S: static config
ID Type Role Mac Address Pri State Comment
2 S FCX648S alone 0024.38c0.bf80 128 local None:0
2/1| 2 |2/2
Current stack management MAC is 0024.38bf.fb00
Eventually, I found that "erase startup" also deleted the stacking.boot
file as well as the startup config, which I suspect contains the stack
membership data. So did that and reloaded and I was back to being unit 1,
then copied the config back fixing the ports along the way and I'm back in
Many thanks for the hints!
