I understand that but thats not exactly what I meant by my question. These stacks will ONLY have 5600 series switches, but using 5500 series stack cables. Are you saying that the 5500 series stack cables just dont support 144gbps?
Anyways, I spent some time fooling around with the switches. FW and SW match on all of them, but I for the life of me cant get them to stack.
Factory defaulted both switches, set base, powered down, connected, powered up. Units just reboot after some pre-determined time because they default to reboot im guessing. Set the hybrid mode settings, set base with UI button, tried a few other power on or connection combinations with no luck. Basically when switches boot they never turn the ports on, hence no switch ip or no stack ip. Switches in stack 1 port led for one of the SFP ports blinks in succession. Im guessing this is some form of stack activity or diag as it always starts at the bottom, then mid, then base.
Do the 56 series stack the same way as a 55 series or am I having these difficulties because im using 5500 series cables? I couldnt find an instruction doc or tutorial to set up a fresh stack, just some for adding switches to existing stacks (if anybody wants to be kind enough and point me to one of those docs)
