Apologies if these questions appear elsewhere - I couldn't find them in a search.
I have two stacks, currently 2 switches each. One is X650-24t & X460-48t, the other is 2 x X460-48t. All switches are running XOS 18.104.22.168. I have them stacked with the SummitStackV80 module and QSFP cables (obviously a 4x40G card in the X650).
1) I'm having problems adding switches to the stack - I have been through the instructions in the 15.1 Concepts Guide, but the links are just reporting as "No Neighbor". I was led to believe I could add switches without having to reboot the whole stack - is this not the case? There was an error in the log on the new switch complaining about the stack MAC address - to experiment I ran a configure stacking mac-address and rebooted. The error went but still no joy. Any ideas?
2) In the working 2-switch stacks, one link is marked as "Blocked". I believe from the documentation that in the event of an equidistant path between two switches (e.g. in a 2-switch stack) both links will be used, one for ports 1-24 and 1 for ports 25-48. Is this not the case?
