Whether front cards and rear stack cards can be used together on S series fixed switches

13

S5700-EI, S5710-LI, and S5700-C-SI series fixed switches have front and rear card slots. Font card slots can have 2-port or 4-port service interface cards installed. Rear card slots can have stack cards or extended channel cards installed.
The rules are as follows:
-- A 4-port ES5D000G4S01 or ES5D00G4SA01 GE front card and a 4-port ES5D000X4S01 10GE front card must be used with an ES5D00ETPB00 rear extended channel card; otherwise, only two ports on the 4-port front card can work.
-- If an ES5D000G4S01 or ES5D00G4SA01 front card is used with an ES5D00ETPC00 rear stack card on an S5700-EI, S5700-SI, or S5710-C-LI switch, only the first two ports on the front card can work when the switch is working normally. If the ES5D000X4S01 front card is used, only ports 1 and 3 are available.
--The ES5D00ETPB00 card used with the ES5D000X4S01 front card must have a PCB of version C.
-- The S5700-EI switch that uses the ES5D000X4S01 front card must have a PCB of version B or later (version C on S5700-52C-EI). You can run the display version command to check the PCB version of a switch.

Differences between stack cards and extended rear channel cards of S series switches
The stack card and extended rear channel card of a switch use the same slot, and they cannot be installed simultaneously. Stack cards are used when switches set up a stack in stack card connection mode. The extended channel card of a switch must be used together with the front four-interface card. To enable a front card of a switch, an extended rear channel card must be installed. If not, only two front interfaces are available.

Does the installation of a stack card in an S series switch affect functions of the front card
The stack card and extended rear channel card of a switch use the same slot, and they cannot be installed simultaneously. When a stack card is installed, no extended card can be installed in the switch. Therefore, when a stack card is installed in a switch, only two front interfaces of the switch are available for the front card.

Cards supported by S series fixed switches
The following S series fixed switches support cards: S3700-HI, S5710-C-LI, S5700-SI (except the S5700-26X-SI-12S-AC), S5700-EI, S5710-EI, S5720-C-EI, S5720-PC-EI, S5700-HI, S5710-HI, S5720-HI, and S6720-EI series switches. Cards must be installed on corresponding switches based on the mapping between them. If a card is installed on an incompatible switch, the card cannot register. You can use Hardware Query Tool to query the card models supported by specified switches.

Whether cards of S series fixed switches support copper modules
The following cards of S series fixed switches support GE copper modules: - ES5D000G4S01 cards (Applicable to S5700-EI series switches. After a GE copper module is installed, the link can go Up. However, you cannot run corresponding commands to configure the rate, duplex mode, auto-negotiation, MDI, flow control, and virtual cable test on the link.) - ES5D00G4SA01 cards (Applicable to S5700-SI and S5710-LI series switches. After a GE copper module is installed, the link can go Up. However, you cannot run corresponding commands to configure the rate, duplex mode, auto-negotiation, MDI, flow control, and virtual cable test on the link.) - ES5D00G4SC00 cards (Applicable to S5700-HI series switches. After a GE copper module is installed, the link can go Up. However, you cannot run corresponding commands to configure the rate, duplex mode, auto-negotiation, MDI, flow control, and virtual cable test on the link.) - ES5D000X2S00 and ES5D000X4S01 cards (Supported by V200R002C00 and later versions, and applicable to S5700-SI series switches.) - ES5D00X2SA00 and ES5D00X4SA00 cards (Supported by V200R002C00 and later versions, and applicable to S5700-HI series switches.) - ES5D21X02S00 cards (Supported by V200R002C00 and later versions, and applicable to S5700-EI series switches.) You can use Hardware Query Tool to query the module types supported by specified cards.

Can GE cards and 10GE cards be used together on an S5700 switch
There is only one service subcard slot on S5700-SI, S5700-EI, S5710-LI, S5720-C/PC-EI, S5700-HI, and S5720-HI switches. GE cards and 10GE cards cannot be used together. GE cards and 10GE cards can be used together on S5710-EI and S5710-HI switches. You can click Hardware Query Tool to query the subcard supported by a specific model.
