Good evening everyone, I was wondering if it was possible to use one of the two "stack-ports" for standard connections up-link. I currently have stack enabled on our 2 devices and they are stacked via the * / 3/1 interfaces of both. There is nothing connected to the * / 3/3 interface.

On the interfaces * / 3/3 of both switches we would like to connect servers that have interfaces at 10g and therefore it would be very convenient for us to be able to use them.
Is it enough to give the command "no stack-port * / 3/3" or doing so would compromise the composition of the stack? Has anyone ever had to "convert" a "stack-port" interface into a normal up-link interface to be used in "standard" ways?
