Latest reply: May 26, 2018 03:06:43 563 2 0 0

Hello everyone,

Now I’d like to share with you how to set up a stack of S series switches.

1.     If you use stack cards to set up a stack, perform the following operations: install stack cards and connect stack cables. After the switches are powered on, they can set up a stack.

2.     If you use service ports to set up a stack through dedicated stack cables, perform the following operations: connect dedicated stack cables to the unconfigured switches. After the switches are powered on, they can set up a stack. Dedicated stack cables are supported since V200R011C10.

3.     If you use service ports to set up a stack through ordinary stack cables, perform the following operations in sequence: configure stack ports, power off the switches, connect stack cables, and then power on the switches. These switches then set up a stack.

For more details, see the Device Management Configuration Guide.

Step 1: Log in to the enterprise technical support website at http://support.huawei.com/enterprise/en/index.html.

Step 2: Click Switches.


Step 3: Click the name of the product to be queried, for example, S5700.


Step 4: Choose Product Documentation Sets > Downloadable Product Documentation Package to find the documentation package for your switch model and version.


Step 5: Click the documentation package, and choose Configuration> CLI-based Configuration Guide > Device Management Configuration Guide > Stack Configuration to view the detailed configurations and configuration examples of the three stack connection modes.


This is what I want to share with you today, thank you!
