Part 1: I have a MS225 in use now, two new MS210s and stacking cables. Can I create a stack with all 3 switches and not lose the port config on the one existing switch?
Part 2: I want to have have this stack to have multiple connections to the 2 "Core" Cisco 3850 switches. I assume I would just aggregate several ports as the uplink trunk doing the mirroring this on the "Core" or is there a better way to do this?
Thanks in advance for any help.
note the reply from @DarrenOC that answers question 1, the existing MS225 should keep its config when added to the stack.
Solved! Go to Solution.
@as per the below document you can’t physically stack an MS250 and MS210. This is only possible with MS210 and MS225’s
@DerikA you are all good to go then, we have multiple MS225/MS210 mixed stacks and they work nicely, ours are even connected to 3850 stacks, but we use the 10Gb SFP+ ports as uplinks with STP blocking one port rather than using port channels as we don't need 20Gb throughput.
@DerikA , all existing switch config will remain. Sounds like you’ve been burnt before by stacking legacy Cisco switches!
Hi @DerikA , then you’re good to go. Stack away.
