I have Virtual Chassis with two members - master and backup. Yesterday the backup member stopped working - with status NotPrsnt.
I tried to connect to the backup switch by console cable, but the console connection also didn't work, so I suppose that the switch is dead (but ports blink) The question is - if I poweroff/poweron the backup switch and it will add to virtual-chassis after reboot, will it disturb network on master switch? Bofh switches form a LAG interface ae0 to chassis cluster.
I believe that the backup switch is already in not-prsnt state so powering it off and powering it on should not have any further impact with respect to the master switch. The lag interface will still have the member from master fpc as part of the lag ae0.
The previous ECalderon's post might be the issue since you console to the device and not get any output, the switch could still forward traffic for sometime, but later might stop... What is your current switch version?
