basic question on 2960 stacking

Hi Experts,

Am a newbie to switching.

I have a basic question.

we currently have a stack of 3 2960-S switches.

we also found an old 2960 (just 2960, not 2960-S or 2960-X) in our inventory.

Is it possible to add the 2960 to our 2960-S stack?

If possible, anything I should be cautious about before adding the switch to the stack..

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Pete

Re: basic question on 2960 stacking

Hi,

Stacking is supported only on Catalyst 2960-S switches running the LAN base image. 2960 switches are not stack capable.

2960-X are also stackable.

Hope this helps.

Not possible.  Look at the back of your legacy 2960 and you'll notice the lack of a stacking module.

The only way you can "stack" this is using switch "clustering".
