I have a D-Link switch stack, can not figure out how to fore needed switch to became a master using

config stacking force_master_role 

I simply do not get what will this command to and the D-Link's documentation is not helpful, so I wonder if there is a way to access stack member units separately and fire this command to see if the switch becoming the master.
