I’m trying to connect SGE2010 and SGE2000 in a stack but it does not work

Unanswered Question

I have just bought 4 SGE switches. SGE2000, SGE2000P, SGE2010 and SGE2010P. I’m trying to connect them in a stack but it does not work. It is possible to connect SGE2010 and SGE2010P in a stack but the other models (SGE2000, SGE2000P) will not connect. I have reset all switches to default and connected the switches in a ring. The 24 ports units has been connected to port 12 and 24 and the 48 ports units has been connected to port 24 and 48The units seem to take the right please in the stack but the 48 units end up with light in all lambs.

Cane SGE2000/P and SGE2010/P really coexist in a stack?

According to Cisco’s website coexistence of SGE2000/P and SGE2010/P in a stack is possible.I have read all availably documentation and tried every ting I cane thing of. However I have not been successful in connecting these devises.

Is there anybody out there who has a stack with both 24 and 48 port SGE devises? I f there is what software version(s) is there installed on the devises?

Yes, SGE2010 and SGE2000 do coexist and has been tested together in a stack. I believe your problem is related to the firmware version on the SGE2000 switches. Because the upgrade for this specific switch going to the version you need is somewhat tricky, I suggest you call the Support organization who can help you through with this upgrade. I have given them a heads-up. The contact numbers can be found at the following link:
