    Why is it recommended to put ActivChassis Backup in middle of stack?

      Adtran recommends that the ActivChassis Backup switch be located generally in the middle of the stack.  So in a seven switch stack about the fourth or fifth switch.  I have an existing numbering scheme for my switches that, without buying a bunch of two meter stacking cables, I can't match with VCID numbers.

       

      If this is an important consideration I'll live with it, but nowhere can I find why they recommend that.  I'm converting nine 1638s to ActivChassis stacks and need a little guidance on this.

       

      Thanks for your help.
