I'm having a very strange situation here (at least for me)
we have 4 core switches
2 x WS-C3750G-24T-S Catalyst 3750 24 10/100/1000T + IPB Image
2 x WS-C3750G-12S-S Catalyst 3750 12 SFP + IPB Image
Stack configuration is done this way
when the switches are powered on, the first two SFP core switches are seen as a single stack with the stack master LED turned green on the first switch
the other two (24 10/100/1000T) switches have the RPS LEDs always green, mode cannot be changed, and cannot be accessed by Console connection
but when the (24 10/100/1000T) are powered off, the first (SFP) switch in the stack reports that " Switch 3 and 4 has been removed from Stack "
which means they are stacked but there's something wrong, because
only the SFP ports are shown in the " Show interfaces status " , the ethernet ports of the bottom switches are not present !!!
can you please tell me what's the poblem ?
