Depends on the firmware loaded.
Please read Configuring Cisco StackWise Virtual (IOS-XE version 16.12.X) and go to the Cisco StackWise Virtual on Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches section.
It does but you don't want to enable it yet.
I am mistaken. Stackwise Virtual is only supported on the "C9500-12Q, C9500-16X, C9500-24Q, C9500-40X".
I am not sure if 48Y support is in the roadmap or not. You may need to ask your Cisco SE/AM for this.
is there any timeline when it will be supported
Don't rush them. Something that is "stable" is a lot better than something that is buggy (and keeps you up all night) like CSCvi92251, CSCvi71507, CSCvj73842, and much, much more.
When IOS-XE 16.10.1 available on Catalyst 9500-48Y4C?
Customer have plan to purchase on next month but they worry about in this feature.
Starting from 16.10.1 Release, StackWise Virtual is also supported on all Cisco Catalyst 9500 high performance
models: C9500-24Y4C, C9500-48Y4C, C9500-32QC, C9500-32C.'
Because of the EOL announcement of catalyst 4500X switch, we want to replace it with C9500-48Y4C-A in the our new LOM.
I have configured below LOM in the cisco build and price portal:
|C9500-48Y4C-A||Catalyst 9500 48-port x 1/10/25G + 4-port 40/100G, Advantage||1|
|SC9500HUK9-1612||Cisco Catalyst 9500H XE.16.12 UNIVERSAL||1|
|C9K-PWR-650WAC-R||650W AC Config 4 Power Supply front to back cooling||1|
|C9K-PWR-650WAC-R/2||650W AC Config 4 Power Supply front to back cooling||1|
|CAB-C13-CBN||Cabinet Jumper Power Cord, 250 VAC 10A, C14-C13 Connectors||2|
|C9500-DNA-48Y4C-A||C9500 DNA Advantage, Term License||1|
|C9500-DNA-A-3Y||Cisco Catalyst 9500 DNA Advantage 3 Year License||1|
|PI-LFAS-AP-T-3Y||PI Dev Lic for Lifecycle & Assurance Term 3Y||3|
We just want to use VSS and some simple routing features.
Can I use this switch without DNA center for above features?
Do the selected license support VSS?
Stackwise Virtual (vss we wont talk about the difference here) Required DNA-Advantage Licensing. Your sku c9500-48Y4C-A will cover that.
Yes you can use this device with out DNAC, this is just the new licensing model.
Hope that covers all of your questions.
