Can you stack 2960 Switch?

My question is can I stack two or more 2960 switches, master/slave design and be able to manage them both using the CMS technology or not. I don't quite understand the SFP, Small Form-Factor Pluggable, and the 2960 uplink ports. It appears as though one uplink will be in standby mode, therefore both ports can't be active at the same time. If that is the case it looks as though you can't stack becasue of only one uplink port being active.

Hi Washro,

You cannot stack 2960 switch like you can do 3750 switches but you can still achieve clustering on this switch.

Also both uplink ports can be active at a time if they get connected to some other switches but if 2 get uplink to same switch then STP will block one port.

STP won't block the second port if you etherchannel the ports.
