Hi all. Apologies for the late response. So I have done some more troubleshooting and the fiber is fine when only one 9200 switch is connected. The moment I added the member switch to the 9200 stack, the connection stopped working. I now seem to be having difficulty getting the 9200 stack to work. Both stack members have the Cisco IOS XE Software, Version 16.09.03 (Catalyst L3 Switch Software (CAT9K_LITE_IOSXE), Version 16.9.3 What I did was I connected the stack master to ensure, powered off the member switch, provisioned the member switch, powered on the member switch. When I do a 'sh ip int brief' it returns the list of ports for both switches, but when I do a 'show switch' I get the following for the member switch: Switch Role Mac Address Priority H/W version Current State 2 Member 0000.0000.0000 0 Provisioned I've done a bit of research but have been unable to find anything. Is it a software version issue? Or have I done the steps incorrectly? Appreciate the help as always.

Hi, I am trying to connect a 9200 switch stack to our existing 3850 core switch via fiber. I have no idea why, but I am unable to get this to work; I'm getting no blinking lights on either end of the connection. I am using a 1GB GLC-SX-MMD at both ends of the connection; the 3850 end is connected to GigabitEthernet1/1/2 and the 9200 is connected to TenGigabitEthernet 1/1/1. I've had the fiber cable checked and it all works fine (SFP ports too) so I'm baffled as to why I cannot get it to work, though it did work when I directly connected the stack master to the 3850. The configuration on both ports is: switchport trunk native vlan 105 switchport mode trunk The transceivers are fine and are detected by both switches and there is nothing else physically wrong so it seems to be a configuration error but I have no idea what. I don't know where to go next and am very frustrated as to why it's not working. If anyone can give me some pointers it would be appreciated :)
