2960 X Stacking Question

2960 X Stacking Question

2960 X Stacking Question

I'm using 2960 X with the flex stacking modules.

I currently have a 3 member stack in my computer room. My question is, I'm going to be adding 3 more switches that are located away in other bldgs. I will be connecting via fiber SFP+ modules. do those switches that I will connect using SFP+ modules get added to the stack ? or are they configured just like standalone switches with there own ip address ?

Any help would be appreciated.


RE: 2960 X Stacking Question

I think you can have a gigastack cross-connect, but I can't remember...since those are full vs half duplex

RE: 2960 X Stacking Question

You would make them standalone switches with addresses.They can only be part of the stack if they are tied together with the backplane stack cables.
