It could be done like this:

But you should also think about splitting it into two stacks with four and three switches. The more switches are in a stack, the more sluggish gets the cli very often.

Hi Karsten,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

I my drawing, based on ours, correct?

There is any rules to make these connections, or it's free (connection 1 can be connected with connection 1 or 2 of the other unit)?

Thanks in advance for your answer.

The main rule is that in the end, you should have a closed ring through all your switches in the stack.

Hi Karsten,

If I understand well, if we can take any way as we close the ring it's OK.

Thanks a lot, I finally understood

Regards
