Switch Stacking with Metro 3750's

Answered Question

I am having a difficult time finding the correct IOS version to run on two Metro DC powered 3750's. I would like to set up switch stacking between the two switches and have already purchased the correct Cisco issued cables to do show. However I can not find the correct IOS that has the switch comand active in it which appears to be necessary to set up stacking. Any help determining the correct IOS to implement would be graetly appreciated!!

This is for the regular 3750, not the Metro series.

I am not sure where you get the impression the ME3750 supports stacking. According from the Q&A, stacking is not supported


Q. Can Cisco Catalyst 3750 Metro Series Switches stack with the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series, Cisco Catalyst 3550 Series, or Cisco Catalyst 2950 Series Switches?
A. No. At this time, the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Metro Series does not include StackWise stacking capability and cannot stack with other Cisco Catalyst 3750 Series Switches. The Cisco Catalyst 3750 Metro Series does contain StackWise stack ports, but they are not supported.
Q. Does the Cisco Catalyst 3750 Metro Series have Cisco StackWise technology?
A. Yes. The Cisco Catalyst 3750 Metro Series does have Cisco StackWise technology, but there is no plan to support this feature.
