Two MS350-24 in a stack but with only one stacking cable. We were going to order the second cable and connect it. Opened a case with support to verify this could be done while the switches are on like a Cisco Catalyst but they said connecting stacking cables while the switches are powered on can cause unexpected behavior.
Has anyone ever connected the second stacking cable while the switches were operational and know the results?
I tend to agree but this site is 24x7 and want to avoid taking an outage if someone has experience doing this live. Just wanted to check with the community since I don't have the equipment to lab this up.
We found that connecting a first (or second) stacking cable between MS355s when powered on lit up the ports but didn't transfer any data. However on MS225s and MS210s they seemed to connect up properly first time...
