3750X stacking, IP Services with IP Base

Dear

I want to setup a new stack of 3750X switches

2 x WS-C3750X-12S-E

1 x WS-C3750X-48T-S

Is this possible or do need al switches to be IP Services (-E) ?

Then I need to swap the 48T-S towards a 48T-E

Kind regards,

Philippe

Hi Philippe,

All switches need the same IOS version and feature set to operate in a stack together.

cheers,

Seb.

It's possible to stack (mix) IP Services with IP Base.

But not recommended, by Cisco. If you have SMARTnet cover and raise a case, then I'm not sure what TAC would say either. They might say 'Sorry, but we can't help until you upgrade the 3rd switch to the same feature set'.

The delay in purchasing software, processing the order, obtaining the software and finally upgrading the switch could be considerable. How vital is the switch stack? It is worth the stress and potential downtime?

Yes it's possible and no you don't need.  IP Services and IP Base can work in the same stack.

Generally if using IP Services, you'll want at least two switches with that feature set license so if the master fails, the other IP Services licensed switch will keep the stack running IP Services (otherwise the stack would drop down to IP Base feature set).

(Remember on a 3750X stack, you'll have the same binary [universal] image installed on all your stack members, but each will have its own device specific feature license.)

As it appears you have dual 12S with IP Services, you're covered for IP Services redundancy.
