TitleWhat is the difference between "Standard" mode and "Enhanced" mode in the Stacking feature?
Question
What is the difference between "Standard" mode and "Enhanced" mode in the Stacking feature?
Environment
  • EXOS all
Answer
Actually there are no significant differences between "standard" mode and "enhanced" mode.

Standard mode
  • Legacy stacking protocol
  • MPLS is not supported
  • Required if some nodes do not support enhanced protocol
  • Default configuration on switches which support both modes
Enhanced mode
  • Supports MPLS, Prority Flow-Control and hi-speed stacking line 160G & 320G
  • x450G2, x460G2, x670G2, x440G2 and x620 series support the Enhanced mode only
Additional notes
You must reboot the switch to activate the stacking protocol change.
If MPLS is enabled on the switch, you must disable MPLS before you can change the stacking protocol to standard.
