Setting and displaying the chassis name

  1. In privileged EXEC mode, issue the configure terminal command to enter global configuration mode.
  2. Enter the switch-attributes command, followed by a question mark (?) to determine the local RBridge ID.
  3. Enter the switch-attributes command, followed by the RBridge ID.
  4. Enter the chassis-name operand, followed by the chassis name.
  5. Save the configuration changes using the do copy running-config startup-config command.
    This step is used for switches in fabric cluster mode only. If you are using logical chassis cluster mode, startup configurations are not maintained by the cluster; each node preserves its running configuration. For more information about logical chassis cluster mode, refer to Logical chassis cluster mode.
