S5720EI Service Port Stacking Support

S5720EI Service Port Stacking Support

  • 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.
  • In V200R009C00 and later versions, if MPLS-incapable S5720EIs exist in a stack, this stack cannot have MPLS enabled. If member devices in a stack are running MPLS services, adding MPLS-incapable S5720EIs to the stack is not allowed. To check whether S5720EIs support MPLS, run the display device capability command.
  • The number of stacked switches is recommended to be 2 to 9.

  • Any models of the S5720EI series can set up a stack.
  • 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 two service ports as stack member ports.
