Possible bug while stacking in 22.1.1.5

When stacking 8 switches, all of them *unconfigure switch all* and out of the box... So they have never had ANY CONFIG. Some switches show this when you run show licence



You see Feature Packs: DirectAttach

This causes members of the stack to fail to join with a licence error. Not sure what DirectAttach is or why its installed. But I had to do a clear licence on all switches before the stack would be stable at all.

I see they're all the same model, but did they not all have the DirectAttach license out of the box?

I guess one or two of the switches didn't have the direct attach license. I couldn't find much literature on it, and I found clearing the license allowed me to build the stack without any issues whatsoever. I want to say I remember something changing with this license, to the effect of it being available without a license in this version, but I don't remember the specifics right now. When I get to the office tomorrow, I can ask around.
Hopefully one of my colleagues can hop in to my rescue before then though 🙂

Yep, that license has become a default recently... didn't know this was an actual license enabled. Drew, I'll let you handle that.

That license is VEPA, btw.
Can confirm that clear licence on all switches was necessary to stack out of the box (only switches that show DirectAttach).
