Do you mean 4948 switch. No they are not stackable. Could you explain what you mean by active/passive ?

hi jon,

thanks for the info. yes i meant 4948 switch.

i meant to say how can i achieve failover?how can i get the capablities of stacking?if it can be achieved.

i need to connect two switches.one for redundancy.

Still not sure what you mean. Are you going to be running the switches in L3 or L2 and how are you connecting devices to the switches.

Can you not just connect the 2 switches with a L2 trunk and have the same vlans on both switches ?

If i have misunderstood could you provide some more details on your setup and what you are trying to achieve.

this is perfectly ok. This is what i have been doing earlier with no issues.

actually i want to migrate to 4948 from 3750 in stack.so just want to conform the changes required if any before ordering the switches.

thank a ton.
