cisco 3450 stack images

Hello,

 

I was wondering. I have 2 3750 stacked. One of it had an issue with the fan and had to take it out. I ordered a new one but it came with a different image as the one that is working right now.

The new one has c3750-ipbase9-mz and the old htat is Online now has ipservices

 

Will it work if I stack them with different image?

 

Thanks

No, you will have a version mismatch... Update for the same IOS version before stacking.

You can stack with different images once the major and minor numbers match

Read page 12 of the guide below for what to look for , but running same image as previously stated will make things smoother

Having exact image will just ensure it stacks fully with all features you can still stack different models and versions once the major minor numbers match , the issue is some features available on image may not be available on both , which is why its recommend to use the same image but may not always be possible when stacking different platforms ,
