We have some Summit X450e equipped with XGM2-2BT Cards. Noe we want to reorganise the stack (4Switches) and distribute it over two rooms (2+2). So I'll try to use one of the 10GBase T Ports for Stacking....
I configured the according Port with
configure stacking-support stack-ports 1 selection alternate or on the other Switch of the pair with
configure stacking-support stack-ports 2 selection alternateI connected the alternate ports with a short cat6 cable, but with show stacking i only see the two switches connected with the normal stacking cable.
I've also reset 4 of our switches to factory default (unconfigure switch all) to checkif it is working when I rebuild the stack from scratch, but no success......
10G Ports, not configured as Stack port are working.
Do I miss something? Where is the error? Do I miss something
Perhaps someone can help me, to get this running.
I've to create this setup from scratch (I've tested some other things now and build the stack with the normal ports) but I'll search the log when I'm at this point You've some hints about what messages I should search?
Ok, tried more, but still no success.....
Taking two switches and configured all Stacking Ports for using 10G Ports on both switches. Linked together via CAT6 Cables still no success......
Is there a trick to get this working?
Or is the XGM2-2BT Card not useable for stacking (although it is mentioned in the stacking documentation)?
Or do we need to do a firmwareupgrade on the cards? (The cards were added later to the switches)
