TitleHow to configure a Summit X670V for native stacking using the VIM4-40G4X module
Objective
Configure a Summit X670V for stacking using the VIM4-40G4X module
Environment
  • Summit X670V with VIM4-40G4X
  • EXOS
Procedure
There are three different speeds that can be used when configuring stacking on the X670V.
  • V80
  • V160
  • V320
V80 and V160 use ports S3 and S4 on the VIM4 module to connect the stack. Just like any other stack the cables should be connected crossed. The commands below need to be done on each individual X670V before the stack can be created:
  • enable stacking-support
  • configure stacking-support stack-ports all selection native [v80|v160]
  • reboot
  • y (to save)
V320 uses all four ports on the VIM4 module. The cables should be connected like so:

  • configure stacking-support stack-ports all selection native v320
  • reboot
  • y (to save)
Additional notes
A note about redundancy:

For V320 stacking the stack will continue to function if any one port is disconnected. The stack will also continue to function if two ports are disconnected, as long as those ports are Ports 1+3 or Ports 2+4. But, if Ports 1+2 or 3+4 go down then the stack will fail.
