In this document we will modify the ID of a switch belonging to the stack as well as its priority.
– When two devices are stacked (as shown below), we can see that the Master is the DGS-1510-28P with ID: 1
, if we want to change the ID of the unit and re-assign from "Current Unit ID and New Box ID ", go to switch configuration

We can also change the priority in the field "Priority”
of ID of member, the unit with the best priority will be elected as the master device. A low value means the highest priority. For example; when two switches have equal priority unit, the lowesr MAC address, will have the highest priority. Therefore, the DGS-1510-28P with the lowest MAC: B0-C5-54-92-35-80 .It will become the master device. The DGS-1510-28X will convert into the slave device.
