Which one is the correct information both two stacked ICX6610-24?

Hi guys.

 

I got one question. Basically, I have two set ICX6610-24 stacked which have same stacking configuration, however they are shown me the difference stacking information by “show interface brief”. Seems like it come from the version difference because both stacked ICX6610 have a diffrence OS version. Ons is 8000a the other is 8020c.

 

I wondering why they have a differnece information about stacking. Which one is correct?

 

Please kindly explain this for me.

 

One is as like below

1/1/24 Down   None   None None None No 20   0   aaaa.bbbb.aaaa

1/2/1   Up     Forward Full 40G   None No N/A 0   cc4e.2485.7d69

1/2/2   Up     Forward Full 10G   None No N/A 0   cc4e.2485.7d6a

1/2/6   Up     Forward Full 40G   None No N/A 0   cc4e.2485.7d6b

1/2/7   Up     Forward Full 10G   None No N/A 0   cc4e.2485.7d6c

1/3/1   Up     Forward Full 1G   None No 10   0   aaaa.bbbb.aaaa

Another is like below,

1/1/24  Down    None    None None  None  No  1    0   cc4e.24f8.9e97                
1/2/1   Up      Forward Full 40G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e99                
1/2/2   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9a                
1/2/3   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9b                
1/2/4   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9c                
1/2/5   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9d                
1/2/6   Up      Forward Full 40G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9e                
1/2/7   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9e9f                
1/2/8   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9ea0                
1/2/9   Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9ea1                
1/2/10  Up      Forward Full 10G   None  No  N/A  0   cc4e.24f8.9ea2                
1/3/1   Down    None    None None  None  No  1    0   cc4e.24f8.9ea3

Hi,

 

You have to use same firmware versions at both side for stacking. It's the way for stacking support.

Also i suggest you to use the latest 08.030d code as software version.

Ivan, are you sure they are cabled exactly the same? If you look on the back their four 40 Gb ports. The two on the left are 40Gb and the two on the right are 40Gb (but 4x10Gb). Please see the interface numbering below.

[1/2/1][1/2/2-5]

[1/2/6][1/2/7-10]

 

Technically, you can any of the ports for stacking. There is no issue with it.

Destan YILANCI,

 

I believe he is comparing two separate switch stacks as he mentions two sets.
