Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Dear Arun,

          How many 9500 can be stacked together using stackwise ? I am planning to replace 6509 core with 9500 however due to fixed module , is there a limitation on how to scale ?

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Hello farmancnemcse1

StackWise Virtual is similar in technology to VSS, and we can stack 2x 9500 (similar SKUs only) into a Virtual Switch.

Thanks,

Arun

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Hi,

Why only Network Advantage support SWV???


My customer bought two C9500-40X-E on Mar. He expect that he can use SWV in the future.


But now...

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Hello Aru,

 

Sorry to bring this issue back

 

Is this issue already solved ?

If I use the "C9500-NM-8X" module, can I use this ports to build the SVL ?

 

Thanks,

Regards,

Bruno

Hi Ahsan Rana,

 

Did you test that out?

What is your output?

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Hello Sir!

 

It worked out very well with Gibraltar 16.11.1, no issues. I used Enhanced PaGP for dual-active detection.

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

How many 9500 can be stacked together using stackwise ? I am planning to replace 6509 core with 9500 however due to fixed module , is there a limitation on how to scale ? since its core i don't want to have multiple instances of stacks , please share if there is anything in roadmap to stack more than two 9500 switches

Beginner

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Good afternoon,

 

Did you find out if the C9500-40X can have more then 2 switches in stack or any plans to include it in the OS?

 

Thanks in advance

Luke

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

As per the SW release 16.8 and 16.9 there is limitation to install VSL link on the up link modules.

 

Cisco StackWise Virtual—When configuring StackWiseVirtual links (SVLs) on the 9500-40X and C9500-16X models of the Cisco Catalyst 9500 Series Switches, note that you cannot create SVLs on any of the uplink modules.

 

Cisco StackWise Virtual—You cannot configure Cisco StackWise Virtual links on the uplink (network) modules (C9500-NM-8X and C9500-NM-2Q).

Re: StackWise Virtual on C9500-40X

Hi,

just stumbled over this thread and had a read on Release Notes.

regarding this https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/switches/lan/catalyst9500/software/release/16-11/release_notes/ol-16-11-9500.html#concept_unq_yc1_mgb having "Stack Wise Virtual Links on Uplink Modules" is now supported from 16.11 on.

thought, that might be interesting for some.

IOS XE 16.11.1 is out since March 30th, so one might want to wait a bit more... :)

 

Cheers
