Hi, 
yes but you will need at least two cables. The EXOS stack needs to be an ring topology

Hope this helps

Hi,

Yes it would work! Please make sure you use Ports 49 and 50 when stacking X440-G2-48p-10GE4 switches.

Please also see the below article:

Mareen  you can use one cable as we do support a daisy-chain design but it is not recommended as it can get you into some trouble with a dual master if the ring fails.  So I agree with Phillip that you should use two.
