    Hi Rocaflu,

     

    to make a specific switch "the" principal switch, use the command "fabricprincipal -f 1":

     

    -f 1

     

    Sets the principal switch selection mode. Specify 1 to enable principal switch selection
    mode. Specify 0 to disable principal switch selection mode. Optionally, use the -f operand
    to force a fabric rebuild. Mode changes take effect when the fabric rebuilds. This operand is
    optional.

     

    A fabric build (BF) which is started by the "-f" is not disruptive. It is a selection process.
