X440-G2 port license upgrade

X440-G2 port license upgrade

I am confused over the licence required to upgrade a X440-G2-48P-10GE4 switch , so that the 2 copper ports can run at 10G rather than IG , the document details to licence upgrades one for 4 ports and one for 2 ports which which is 16542. Basically I need too connect by 10Gig copper ( X670V-48T which I have in the core .

Thankd in advance

When you use dual-upgrade-license - it's for ports 51-52.
(because if you use Stack you don't need 4-upgrade-license)

So to use 10GBase-T you need dual-upgrade.

Thank you!

The 10G Dual Lic ist alway for the shared 10G ports, if the device has 10G Copper (not all X440G2 10G devices have shared copper ports).
@Dana & Alexandr - Rod doesn't write that he want to stack...
btw... 10G Stacking via copper (RJ45) is not supported...

Hello, Rod!

But you have to remember that if you stack X440 with X670, stack performance will be based on X440 (FDB, LPM etc.).

Thank you!
