Hierarchy Level


Disable the split and merge feature in a Virtual Chassis or VCF configuration.

The split and merge feature is enabled by default when you initially set up a Virtual Chassis. If you have only two members in your Virtual Chassis, we strongly recommend that you configure no-split-detection to disable the split and merge feature. This feature makes sure both switches remain in the correct Virtual Chassis roles in the event of a Virtual Chassis split. If you expand the two-member Virtual Chassis later to add more members, delete the no-split-detection configuration item to re-enable the split and merge feature again.


The split and merge feature is enabled.
