Determining the Stack Connection Support and Mode

Stack Version Requirements

imgDownload?uuid=91b0e2452a1c416da8501f7 NOTE:Switches can set up a stack through stack card connection and service port connection based on stack port types. Service port connections are classified into ordinary and dedicated cable connections based on cable types.

  • Ordinary cable connection: Switches use optical cables, network cables, and high-speed cables to set up a stack.

  • Dedicated cable connection: Switches use dedicated stack cables to set up a stack. This connection mode is also called zero-configuration stacking.

S2700 Service Port Stacking Support

imgDownload?uuid=91b0e2452a1c416da8501f7 NOTE:

  • For the cables that can be used as stack cables, see "Cables" in the Hardware Description. Using other cables may cause exceptions in the stack system, for example, frequent error-down events on stack ports.
  • Combo ports cannot function as stack member ports.
  • For stacking-supported service ports, some of them can be used as stack ports, whereas some can be used as ordinary service ports.
  • After a UCL group is created using the ucl-group command on S2720EI switches, a stack cannot be set up.
  • Since V200R011C10, S2720EI and S2750EI series switches can set up stacks in service port stacking mode using dedicated stack cables.
  • The number of S2750EIs used to set up a stack is recommended to be 2 to 5.
  • For S2700EIs and S2710SIs, if the stack system works only in Layer 2 and Layer 3 forwarding scenarios, the number of stack member switches is recommended to be 2 to 5. If the stack system works in user access or gateway scenarios that require protocol interaction, the number of stack member switches is recommended to be 2 or 3.
  • The S2720EI has only one model, S2720-28TP-EI-AC, in V200R006C10, V200R009C00, and V200R010C00. The S2720-28TP-EI-AC cannot be upgraded to V200R011C00 and later versions. The number of S2720-28TP-EI-ACs used to set up a stack is recommended to be 2 to 5. In V200R011C10 and later versions, the number of S2720EIs used to set up a stack is recommended to be 2 to 9.

NOTE:

An S5720HI supports the stacking function since V200R009C00. When a member device in a stack is faulty and fails to restart for three consecutive times, the device attempts to roll back to a version earlier than V200R009C00 for restart. When the device restarts successfully after rolling back to a version earlier than V200R009C00, a multi-active situation may occur because the version earlier than V200R009C00 does not support the stacking function. To prevent this situation, you are advised to delete the system software earlier than V200R009C00 from member devices when using S5720HIs to set up a stack.

  • A stack can be set up between S5720S-P-LI, S5720S-TP-LI, and S5720S-X-LI, but a stack cannot be set up between the S5720S-LI and S5720LI. When different models need to set up a stack, they must use stack ports of the same type. That is, all of them either use electrical ports on the front panel or use SFP or SFP+ optical ports.
  • When SFP+ optical ports are used as stack ports, a switch supports a maximum of two logical stack ports, and each logical stack port contains one or two stack member ports. Each switch can use a maximum of four service ports as stack member ports. When a logical stack port contains two stack member ports, the logical stack port can contain only stack member ports 1 and 2 or stack member ports 3 and 4.
  • When electrical ports or downlink SFP optical ports on the front panel are used as stack ports, a switch supports a maximum of two logical stack ports, and each logical stack port supports at least one stack member port and at most eight stack member ports. A switch supports a maximum of 16 stack member ports.On a switch with 48 electrical ports, the first and last 24 ports must be added to two separate logical stack ports to ensure that a stack can be set up successfully.
  • Since V200R010, several new S5720S-X-LI model with downlink SFP optical ports are available. These switches allow using downlink SFP optical ports on the front panel as stack member ports. If one member switch uses downlink SFP optical ports as stack member ports, all the other member switches must also use downlink SFP optical ports as stack member ports.
  • If stack member ports are connected using 1 m or 3 m SFP+ passive high-speed copper cables, their working speed can be increased to 12 Gbit/s using the stack port speed command. After their working speed is increased to 12 Gbit/s, switches using these ports cannot set up a stack with switches using ports with the working speed 10 Gbit/s.
  • If S5720S-X-LI switches are stacked with S5720S-P-LI and S5720S-TP-LI switches using optical ports, run the stack port speed command on the S5720S-X-LI switches to reduce the working speed of stack member ports to 2.5 Gbit/s.

  • For the cables that can be used as stack cables, see "Cables" in the Hardware Description. Using other cables may cause exceptions in the stack system, for example, frequent error-down events on stack ports.
  • Combo ports cannot function as stack member ports.
  • For stacking-supported service ports, some of them can be used as stack ports, whereas some can be used as ordinary service ports.
  • After a UCL group is created using the ucl-group command on S5720SI&S5720S-SI&S5720I-SI switches, a stack cannot be set up.
  • S5720SI series switches are classified into S5720-P-SI and S5720-X-SI based on their uplink interface types.
  • S5720S-SI series switches are classified into S5720S-P-SI and S5720S-X-SI based on their uplink interface types.
  • MultiGE ports of an S5720-14X-PWH-SI-AC cannot be used as stack member ports.
  • In V200R010 and later versions, any models of S5720I-SI, S5720SI and S5720S-SI can set up a stack. When different models need to set up a stack, they must use stack ports of the same type. That is, they either all use electrical ports on front panels or all use SFP+ or SFP optical ports. In V200R009 and earlier versions, S5720-14X-PWH-SI-AC cannot set up a stack with S5720S-SI or other S5720SI models. The S5720S-SI can set up a stack with all S5720SI models except S5720-14X-PWH-SI-AC.
  • Since V200R010, two SFP+ optical ports of an S5720-14X-PWH-SI-AC can be used as stack member ports. If SFP+ optical ports of an S5720-14X-PWH-SI-AC have been configured as stack member ports but the switch needs to be downgraded to V200R009 or an earlier version, delete the stack member port configuration of SFP+ optical ports before the downgrade. If this configuration is not deleted before the downgrade, a stack that cannot run normally will be set up after the downgrade. You need to disable the stacking function to delete the stack member port configuration of SFP+ optical ports.
  • Among S5720I-SI series switches, the S5720I-6X-PWH-SI-AC and S5720I-10X-PWH-SI-AC do not support the stacking function.
  • In a stack set up using electrical interfaces, when adding a new member switch or replacing a faulty member switch, to prevent a packet loop caused by a failure to add the new member in case of insufficient ACL resources, you are advised to configure the service ports used in both the new switch and the stack as stack ports before connecting the switch to the stack using cables.
  • Since V200R011C10, S5720SI and S5720S-SI series switches can set up stacks in service port stacking mode using dedicated stack cables. S5720I-SI series switches of all versions can set up stacks in service port stacking mode using dedicated stack cables.
  • The number of stacked switches is recommended to be 2 to 9.

If you configure any interface in each group as a physical member interface, configurations on the other three interfaces in the group will be lost and the three interfaces cannot be used as service ports.

S6720LI and S6720S-LI Service Port Stacking Support

imgDownload?uuid=91b0e2452a1c416da8501f7 NOTE:

  • For the cables that can be used as stack cables, see "Cables" in the Hardware Description. Using other cables may cause exceptions in the stack system, for example, frequent error-down events on stack ports.
  • Combo ports cannot function as stack member ports.
  • For stacking-supported service ports, some of them can be used as stack ports, whereas some can be used as ordinary service ports.
  • Since V200R011C10, S6720LI and S6720S-LI series switches can set up stacks in service port stacking mode using dedicated stack cables.
  • The number of stacked switches is recommended to be 2 to 9.
