Merging two logical chassis clusters

You can merge two logical chassis clusters that have the same VCS ID. Follow these steps:

  1. Make all required physical connections between the two independent clusters.
  2. Decide which cluster should retain the configuration after the merge. Only one configuration can be retained.
  3. On the cluster whose configuration will not be retained, issue the copy default-config startup-config command so that the nodes in this cluster will reboot with the default configuration.
  4. Reboot all nodes in each cluster. The logical chassis cluster whose configuration is being retained recognizes the nodes from the other cluster as new nodes and adds them accordingly.
  5. Re-apply the configuration to the cluster whose configuration was not retained.
