Do S5720EI, S5700EI, and S5700SI switches use stack cards of the same model

1

S5720EI, S5700EI, and S5700SI switches do not use stack cards of the same model.
The model of the stack cards used by the S5720EI is ES5D21VST000, and that of the stack cards used by the S5700EI or S5700SI is ES5D00ETPC00.

Must 4-port GE cards and 4-port 10GE cards of the S5700EI and S5700SI switches be used with rear extended channel cards
When a 4-port GE card or 4-port10GE card is used without a rear extended channel card, only two ports on the card are available: - 4-port GE subcard: Only the first and second ports can be initialized. The two ports are displayed as GigabitEthernet */1/1 and GigabitEthernet */1/2 after initialization. - 4-port 10GE subcard: Only the first and third ports can be initialized. The ports are displayed as XGigabitEthernet */1/1 and XGigabitEthernet */1/2 after initialization.

Are the subcards of S5700SI and S5700EI hot swappable
Subcards of S5700-SI and S5700-EI are not hot swappable. Subcards of S5700-HI, S5710-EI, S5720-EI, S5710-HI, and S5720-HI are hot swappable.

Do subcards of the S5700SI and S5700EI support 10GE ports
The S5700SI and S5700EI switches use front subcards to provide 10GE ports. The ES5D000X2S00 and ES5D000X4S01 front subcards provide 10GE ports on the S5700SI and S5700EI switches. They use SFP+ optical modules. The S5700SI and S5700EI switches support the ES5D000X2S00 and ES5D000X4S01 front subcards since V100R005. An ES5D000X2S00 front subcard can be used without a rear subcard or together with a rear subcard supported by the switches. When an ES5D000X4S01 front subcard is used together with an ES5D00ETPB00 extended rear subcard of which the PCB version is VER.C, all the four ports on the ES5D000X4S01 front subcard can be used. If an ES5D000X4S01 front subcard is used without an ES5D00ETPB00 extended rear subcard or used together with a stack rear subcard, only the first and third ports on the front subcard can be used. The two ports are displayed as XGigabitEthernet */1/1 and XGigabitEthernet */1/2 in command lines. NOTE: * indicates the slot ID of the switch.
