Csico C2960-XR stack down state

Yuliya S
Beginner
Beginner

Hi guys.

 

I have two switches:

WS-C2960XR-48TS-I

WS-C2960XR-24PS-I 

 

I tried to stack these switches. I connected port 1 of SW1 to port 2 of SW2 and port  2 of SW1 

then i configured a priority and stack-mac persistent timer 4:

sw1

Switch/Stack Mac Address : 38ed.1848.4400
Mac persistency wait time: 4 mins
                                           H/W   Current
Switch#  Role   Mac Address     Priority Version  State 
----------------------------------------------------------
*1       Master 38ed.1848.4400     1      4       Ready               

 

         Stack Port Status             Neighbors     
Switch#  Port 1     Port 2           Port 1   Port 2 
--------------------------------------------------------
  1       Down       Down             None     None

 

 

sw2

Switch#show switch det
Switch/Stack Mac Address : f0b2.e5fd.3380
Mac persistency wait time: 4 mins
                                           H/W   Current
Switch#  Role   Mac Address     Priority Version  State 
----------------------------------------------------------
*2       Master f0b2.e5fd.3380     2      4       Ready               

 

         Stack Port Status             Neighbors     
Switch#  Port 1     Port 2           Port 1   Port 2 
--------------------------------------------------------
  2       Down       Down             None     None

Switch#

 

Software version is same for both switches: 

Cisco IOS Software, C2960X Software (C2960X-UNIVERSALK9-M), Version 15.0(2a)EX5, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc3)

Then i reloaded two switches at the some time but i see the state of both port is DOWN, could you help me?

sorry, I see you found the data sheet also.   I am out of ideas.  It should be working.

Can you post the full show version of both switches ?

Hi can you post show switch stack-ports

Have you tried to reseat the stack cables this can help, also shut both down start up the master wait 30 secs and then start the slave in case there having an issue negotiating

 

You could move off those EX IOS as well there known to be quite buggy , I see in your release notes a bug that may effect you and theres a few more stack bugs too

Unsetting the stack member numbers and then rebooting the switch stack can cause the stack to crash or cause the stack master election to stop.

If this occurs, either:

Restart the switch stack.

Manually assign stack member numbers to all switches in the stack, and then restart the stack.

 

Hi Mark!

I upgraded the soft of both switches till version 15.2(3)E2, RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

can you post show switch stack-ports

Yes, i can, see the output below:

Switch#show swit stack-ports 
  Switch #    Port 1       Port 2 
  --------    ------       ------ 
    1          Down         Down  

 

Have you tried to reseat the stack cables this can help, also shut both down start up the master wait 30 secs and then start the slave in case there having an issue negotiating

Yes, I have tried to reseat the stack cables but it doesn't help me.

hi Yulia,

If possible ... try connecting port 1 and 2 on the same switch.  The ports should show as coming up.  This will confirm if you have a problem with the ports or with the cables.

 

Regards,

Doron

 

Tried to connect port 1 and 2 on the same switch - all is ok for both switches:

Sep 17 04:47:35.882: %STACKMGR-4-STACK_LINK_CHANGE: Stack Port 1 Switch 2 has changed to state UP
Sep 17 04:47:35.882: %STACKMGR-4-STACK_LINK_CHANGE: Stack Port 2 Switch 2 has changed to state UP

 

Switch#show switch stack-ports
  Switch #    Port 1       Port 2
  --------    ------       ------
    1           Ok           Ok

Returned cables - doesn't work 

One more thing ... I think your switches are running IP lite which does not support stacking.

 

Look at the show version or show license to confirm which license you have enabled.

Should i buy license for that? may be i'm using incorrect software image?

 

Switch#show license
Index 1 Feature: iplite
        Period left: Life time
        License Type: Permanent
        License State: Active, In Use
        License Priority: Medium
        License Count: Non-Counted

I see that 2960XR ip lite supports FlexStack (see table 5)

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/switches/catalyst-2960-x-series-switches/data_sheet_c78-728232.html#Table52960XRDefaultSupplyCo

 

Actually IP Lite on the XR switches does support stacking.  See table 5 and 6 from the data sheet here.

sorry, I see you found the data sheet also.   I am out of ideas.  It should be working.

Can you post the full show version of both switches ?

I checked this version yesterday :) 

 

It doesn't work. Today i upgraded till latest available version.

Can you post a picture of your setup?

I uploaded current setup installation

Can you please reboot one of the switches and post all the output from the boot up?
