Reboot

Then issue the commands

Irf member 1 renumber 3

Irf member 1 irf-port 1 port 1

Irf member 1 irf-port 2 port 2

Save

Reboot

Connect the new unit to the IRF Stack.

Symptom:

Error: The device is not in the current IRF

Cause:

If a device has been previously configured with an incorrect member ID or does not match the stack member ID, the new device will not synchronize with the existing stack.

Fact:

Attempting to add an IRF device to a stack, that was previously configured or misconfigured.

Resetting the device back to factory defaults does not remove the IRF number

ERROR: The device is not in the current IRF. Unable to add a new device to an IRF Stack
