Stacking configuration for X670V-48t with X670G2-48x-4q

I am trying to stack X670V-48t with X670G2-48x-4q but I am unsure of the physical cable configuration required for any of the modes (v80, v160, v320). The X670V-48t has the VIM4 module. The G2 has 4 QSFP ports on the front. I've tried a few different physical configurations but when I run easy setup it says it is a daisy-chain and that there is only one node. I have run enable stacking commands as well as configured the stack ports for v180. I am questioning though if the physical setup is correct.

Any guidance would be welcome.

I am not sure about stacking G1s and G2s. I do know that one the G2s we have stacked using the front ports we had to configure stacking support on the front ports and then enable stacking support. I can not recall the exact command for configuring stacking support on the front ports but you should be able to tab your way through. 

I would be curious to know if you are able to stack G1s and G2s after getting those ports configured.

I figured out the problem. The G2 uses the enhanced stacking protocol. I had to configure the other switch to use the enhanced protocol as well. Once I did that the switches could see each other and easy-setup took care of the rest.

Yes. We can do stack with G2 and G1 platforms.
We must ensure below things on both nodes before do stacking

- EXOS Image should same
- Active partition should be same
- Stacking protocol should be same (G2 platforms supports only enhancement protocol, But G1 supports both Standard and enhanced. default is standard.
- License on both nodes
