TitleHow to build a 2-node stack of Summit X670-G2-48x-4q and Summit X460-G2 (VIM-2q) using SummitStack-V160
Objective
How to build a 2-node stack of Summit X670-G2-48x-4q and Summit X460-G2 (VIM-2q) using SummitStack-V160
Environment
  • Summit X670-G2-48x-4q
  • Summit X460-G2 (with VIM-2q)
Procedure
1. Hardware Requirement
 - Summit X670-G2-48x-4q: Port 57 and 61 used for 160G stacking
 - Summit X460-G2: VIM-2q option card required for 160G stacking
 
2. Software Requirement
 - Ensure all the switches in a stack have the same EXOS/bootrom/license level, and boot to the same partition.

When the license level is different across master-capable nodes in a stack, the following command should be configured to lower the effective license to the common level.
 
# configure stacking {node-address node-address | slot slot-number} license-level [core|advanced-edge|edge]

3. Stacking Cable Connection
 - Various QSFP+ optics/cables can be used for stacking ports: 40G MPO cables with QSPF+ optics, QSFP+ direct-attach cables, etc.
 
(S1)            (S2)
 57 ----------- S2
 61 ----------- S1
 
4. Stacking Configuration Steps
 - Enable "stacking-support" to use native 40Gb ports as statcking ports, and reboot switches, respectively.
 
# enable stacking-support
# configure stacking-support stack-ports all selection native v160 
# reboot
- Enable stacking (Easy Setup) on the switch which is desired to be slot 1. 
 
# enable stacking
# Yes
- All of the switches will reboot as a stack with the factory default configuration.

5. Change Stacking Configuration

- To change slot number, please use the following commands in the current master node and reboot the entire stack or a particular node.
 
# configure stacking node-address <node-mac-address> slot-number 1        
# reboot stack-topology or reboot node-address <node-mac-address>
* node-mac-address is the mac address of a switch node in a stack and can be displayed by "show stacking" or "show stacking configuration" commands.  

- To change stack master priority, please use the following commands in the current master node and reboot the entire stack or a particular node.
 
# configure stacking node-address <node-mac-address> priority 100   >>> The larger, the higher priority    
# reboot stack-topology or reboot node-address <node-mac-address>
- To change master-capability, please use the following commands in the current master node and reboot the entire stack or a particular node.
 
# configure stacking node-address <node-mac-address> mastercapability [on | off] 
# reboot stack-topology or reboot node-address <node-mac-address>
