Hi Murari,

By stacking, do you mean stackwise virtual ? because catalyst 9500 do not support stacking like catalyst 3850 and 9300

I have put two of c9500-32c in vStack in my network.

 

What version of c9500 do you have? Not all have vStack.

 

You need soft higher than 16.9.1. In that the virtual-stack for my switches was implemented in a hidden manner. vStack is not automatic and you must be ready to restart. You need at least 2 to 3 cables (it makes sense). Two on the port-channel and one on the keeper. For my hardware, they must be lower ports than Hun1/ 0/16.
