Extend existing IRF Stack with Third Switch.

Dear,

 

We have a IRF stack with 2x A5500 (JG240A)

 

The Master has the highest priority (32) and the slave has default value of 1.

 

We want to extend this IRF stack with a third switch.

 

What is the best practice to add this switch, if possible with no down-time.

 

Set a unit number 3 on switch 3.

Config the IRF ports on switch 3, set active ?

Leave default priority.

And then plugin the stack cable from switch 2-poort1 to switch3-poort2?

 

What would you recommend ?

 

Thanks in advanced.

 

With kind regards,

A tech note I wrote a few years is attached. Check Section 3.3.
