Stack between a WS-2960S and a 2960X series

Good morning,

I'd like to know if it is possible to make a stack between a WS-2960S and a 2960X series switches.

 

I'd like to know also if the stack card that is working now on a ws-2960S can be uses on a 2960X switch.

 

Thanks in advance for your help,

 

Regards,

Thanks for your replies.Do

Thanks for your replies.

Do you know if I can use a stacking module that is currently installed on a 2690-s on a 

2960-x? I mean, I have to replace a 2960-s stack member with a 2960-x, and I wanted

to know if I have to purchase an additional stacking module, or if I can re-use the one that

is on the 2960-s that has to be replaced.

 

Thanks for your help

Cristiano.

Christiano,Please find

Christiano,

Please find anaswer:-

 

1) 2960-stack moudles fit only 2960s

2) 2960-x fit modules fit only 2960x

3) cables are the same

 

B-
Can we use FlexStack stacking modules with Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series?
A. No. The form factors of  FlexStack-Plus and FlexStack modules are different. The FlexStack  stacking module cannot be used with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series.  Similarly, the FlexStack-Plus module cannot be used with the Cisco  Catalyst 2960-S Series.

Hi,Never done it, but

Hi,

Never done it, but according to the data sheet you can mix 2960x with 2960s as long as you have FlexStack-Plus module installed.

 

FlexStack-Plus is backward compatible with 2960-S and FlexStack. Mixing 2960-X and 2960-S members in a stack is supported. When the stack membership is mixed with 2960-X and 2960-S models, FlexStack-Plus falls back to FlexStack capabilities of 40Gbps stack bandwidth and four members maximum per stack.
