VSP 4000 stack ?

VSP 4000 stack ?

VSP 4000 stack ?

(OP)
Hello team,

Does the VSP 4450 switches cores supports stack ? if so how to configure this stack between two VSP 4450 ?

I went through the doc, but no thing found regarding stack configuration, like ERS series (3500, 5000...etc)

I want to stack this two Switches, and then connect with other Switches in the building through Fiber, by configuring MLT trunk...

please any help ?

Thank you

RE: VSP 4000 stack ?

VSP 4450 don't support stacking.

You can just daisy chain them together. If you purchase an advanced licence you can cluster them with SMLT.

thank you andy88

Can link to them using only vIST ? if so does any licence on VSP required

If you have some configuration example or steps, please don't hesitate to share them

Thank you

Use Fabric (SPB and IS-IS)

Also, a great video on the setup from Extreme. (Update your FW first)

Thank you guys, I have use vIST link to build a cluster between two VSP:


On the second Switch, record ISIS system ID:

# show isis system-id

On the first Switch, enter SMLT peer System-ID

# router isis
# spbm 10 smlt-peer-system-id b0ad.aa42.9c84
# exit

# mlt 10 enable
# mlt 10 member 1/15,1/16
# mlt 10 encapsulation dot1q

# interface mlt 10
# isis
# isis spbm 10
# isis enable
# exit

# interface gigabitEthernet 1/15-1/16
# no spanning-tree mstp force-port-state enable
# no shutdown

# vlan create 4042 name vIST type port-mstprstp 1
# vlan i-sid 4042 100031

# interface Vlan 4042
# ip address 10.10.31.1 255.255.255.252
# exit

# virtual-ist peer-ip 10.10.31.2 vlan 4042
# router isis enable

Validate vIST Configuration is working:

# show virtual-ist

here I can show my IST is UP and sync

thank you
