I have tried to find a complete answer to this. Most of the documentation relates to the CLI. I am attempting to bring up my EX4400-24x's (2) in a Virtual Chassis. Reading the information about this particular model, it appears that I need to issue this command:request virtual-chassis mode hgoe reboot
request virtual-chassis vc-port set pic-slot 1 port 0request virtual-chassis vc-port set pic-slot 1 port 1
However, the CLI/shell states that the Mist AI will overwrite anything that I put in the shell. Also, I want this to extend to more than just the switches I initially setup (replace due to an RMA, etc.) so I want the configuration to be in the GUI. So, if I add it to the additional CLI area of the rule for my switch, would I do something like this?
issue the first command minus the reboot part. I would assume adding reboot to the addditonal CLI area would put it in an infinite loop. Then I would reboot the switches. After that, I would then add the other lines.
This seems, ideally, like what I would like to place in the additional CLI area:
request virtual-chassis mode hgoe
request virtual-chassis vc-port set pic-slot 1 port 0 all-membersrequest virtual-chassis vc-port set pic-slot 1 port 1 all-membersset virtual-chassis member 0 mastership-priority 255set virtual-chassis member 1 mastership-priority 255set virtual-chassis member 2 mastership-priority 128
can the all-members part be added? it doesn't specify in the instructions for the EX4400-24x, but the information on mode settings for EX series switches says you can.
Thank you very much for your answer. Your first statement clarified everything for me. I am sorry I did not respond sooner.
I was able to do the first line via CLI, reboot and then create the VC. I then went into the VC configuration GUI and made sure that everything was set correctly, and to make sure that it stayed that way, I clicked on the pre-provision button. It was extremely simple after learning that. I still have a lot to figure out as far as how easy replacing a failed switch is and how to flip-flop what is the master and what is the backup, but I have it setup and running and it is working perfectly.
