Copy firmware to newly added member

I manage several school district networks.  I have some x460’s being added to existing stacks in the very near future.  Surly, the firmware will not be the same.  I seem to remember a command/process to stack the new member into the stack, then copy over the running firmware to the new member, then include it into the stacking group.  I can’t remember the command.  Or did I dream this….

I believe sync slot is the command you are looking for.

I was so happy when that became an option.

Nice.  Thank you.  I have guys slapping in switches that are not the same firmware and I’m 600 miles away….

Are those G2-Switches? With 22.6 came the “automatic stacking” feature. If the existing stack is running at least Firmware it should be enough to connect the new switch (stacking-support needs to be enabled) to the stack and everything else (like firmware-upgrade) should happen automatic.
