1.         A stack cannot be set up among different switch series. For example, a stack cannot be set up among the S5700 and S6700 switches.

2.         A stack cannot be set up among different switch models of the same switch series. For example, a stack cannot be set up among the S5720EI and S5720HI switches.

3.         A stack can be set up among only certain different switch models of the same switch series. For example, a stack can be set up among the S5720SI and S5720S-SI switches but not among the S5720LI and S5720S-LI switches. For details about whether a stack can be set up among different switch models, see stack support of different switch models in Product Use Precautions . As described in Remarks of S6720LI& S6720S-LI Service Port Stacking Support, a stack can be set up among all S6720LI models, among all S6720S-LI models, but not among the S6720LI and S6720S-LI models.
