So I am trying to stack these 2 switches.  I have checked that the ports are enabled, I have enabled stacking on both switches, I have also verified that both are using the same licensing Advanced Edge, I have also verified they are both using the same stacking protocol (Standard).  But when I issue the show stacking command from either switch they only show themselves and not the other switch.  Cabling I have a cable from 450 port 49 to 670 port 47, also 450 port 50 to 670 port 48.  Port status show Not Present.  When I plug 450 port 49 into 670 port 41 (normal client port) it lights up but shows no neighbor. Which is expected.  Do I need to be using a cross-over cable for this?  Or what is it I am missing here? 

Additionally they are both running 15.3.3.5 XOS

Well I believe I have figured it out.  I cannot do what I am wanting to do.  According to the SummitStack-V documentation on a x670V-48t only the fiber modules can be used as stacking ports and ports 45 and 46 cannot be used at all.  Well that throws a wrench in my plans, my 450a 10GbE module has copper ports..........  PIA
