I know there's button on Dell 35xx that I can change the stacking status during the reboot. But on Dell 6248 I didn't find such function, nor did I find the way to disable in the manual.

In Dell 6248's manual, it did mention when all Stacking LEDs are off, "The unit is operating as a standalone switch." So there must be a way to set it, but so far I didn't find it

Well these are stackable switches by design, so you can't opt-out form this.

Thanks Andrew, maybe I didn't state my question clear. I actually want to configure it in "standalone" mode. In Dell 6248's manual, it did mention when all Stacking LEDs are off, "The unit is operating as a standalone switch." So there must be a way to set it, but so far I didn't find it.... –  Carl Jun 26 '12 at 3:04
    
But would that mean to delete the config file during the startup? –  Andrew Smith Jun 26 '12 at 9:30
    
And re-upload the version again but without stacking enabled. –  Andrew Smith Jun 26 '12 at 9:32
    
Somewhat reconfiguring stack node to the standalone would require this definitely. –  Andrew Smith Jun 26 '12 at 9:33

As long as you do not have another switch connected to the stacking port it will function as a standalone switch.
