I'm trying to setup a hitless failover stack running the router image on some FCX ethernet switches, but the command (see guide To enable hitless failover, enter the following command at the Global CONFIG level of the CLI)
is not available?
I have firmware 07.0.01b.
Can anyone point out why hitless failover doesn't work? Firmwareupgrade needed? Not possible with router code?
The stack works perfect but when 1 goes down the whole stack reboots and takes around a minute to come back, which would be better if it was hitless...

Do you have a static mac set for the stack?
At the config prompt, type stack mac xxxx.xxxx.xxxx
Set it as the same mac as the Active Controller in your stack. If that doesn't let you enable hitless fail-over, I'd upgrade the switches. Version 07.4.00 was just released, so you are a bit behind.
