Catalyst 9500-40X - Stackwise Virtual soon?

I'm looking to implement a couple 9500-40Xs with Network Advantage as core switches at two smaller locations. Any dates on when the 40Xs will support stackwise-virtual? I see, at least based on the release notes, that only the 24 port 40G model supports it currently.

Re: Catalyst 9500-40X - Stackwise Virtual soon?

Starting with release 16.8.1a which has been released April 6th 2018, the feature is now also supported on the following models of the Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches:
C9500-24Q, C9500-12Q, C9500-40X, C9500-16X
Please consider that you can use the 40Gbps interfaces as SVL links yet.

I've had a pair of C9500-40X switches in a stackwise-virtual configuration for a few weeks now.  We're running 16.6.2b code.

We are also running 16.6.2 with Stackwide-virtual on a pair of 9500-40Xs but the upgrade to 16.6.3 does NOT have stackwise-virtual commands available, at least not for the 9500-40Xs.

Re: Catalyst 9500-40X - Stackwise Virtual soon?

Stackwise virtual support for 9500-40X requires at least 16.8.1a which was just recently released.

Currently it is not possible to using a 40Gbps Interfaces as SVL link.

Re: Catalyst 9500-40X - Stackwise Virtual soon?

Any idea why it isn't supported on the 40G links yet ?
Could it be that both 40G interfaces are terminated on the same ASIC, and therefore not really redundant ?

Re: Catalyst 9500-40X - Stackwise Virtual soon?

Just tried to configure it but failed. Activating VSL on a 40G interface triggers an error message saying that this interface is not supported

Upgrade to 16.8. Stackwise-virtual is working on that code release without any issues for us so far.
