Adtran recommends that the ActivChassis Backup switch be located generally in the middle of the stack. So in a seven switch stack about the fourth or fifth switch. I have an existing numbering scheme for my switches that, without buying a bunch of two meter stacking cables, I can't match with VCID numbers.
If this is an important consideration I'll live with it, but nowhere can I find why they recommend that. I'm converting nine 1638s to ActivChassis stacks and need a little guidance on this.
Thanks for your help.
