How can I merge multiple devices management in one?

I want that non stackable switch works like as if they were stacked just for management, is this possible?

I have some x430 connected to one x460. All i want is to see all ports and configure all vlans in the same way that i can do in stacked switchs.

X460-48p.8 # show edp ports all
Port Neighbor Neighbor-ID Remote Age Num
Port Vlans
=============================================================================
3 X430-24t 00:00:00:04:96:xx:xx:xx 1:23 39 6
4 X430-24t 00:00:00:04:96:xx:xx:xx 1:23 53 6
5 X430-24t 00:00:00:04:96:xx:xx:xx 1:23 24 6
6 X430-24t 00:00:00:04:96:xx:xx:xx 1:23 55 6[/code]
Thanks

Unfortunately this is not possible. The best solution for simplified management may be to use an NMS like Netsight to manage all of these switches.

Hi Gerson, if you are using standalone switches, their ports/vlans have to be configured in each switch individually even for management purpose.

As an alternative you might be able to use Extreme Management Center (formerly Netsight) or create a python script to apply common configuration to multiple devices.
Henrique, thanks for the advise about Management Center. I'm using syncronizeds telnet access to apply common config.
