You could run Software Mixed Stack but we recommend against it.

The Stack Master feature set will dictate what services are available in the Stack.

If the Stack Master fails and other Stack Member takes over with lesser feature set,

you can have into interruption of services if you rely on features only found on the higher feature set.

The link I provided explains it all, please take a moment and read the entire document.

"All stack members must run the same Cisco IOS  software image and feature set to ensure compatibility between stack  members. For example, all stack members should run the universal  software image and have the IP services feature set enabled for the  Cisco IOS Release 12.2(53)SE2 or later."

Thanks Edis for the help,

I am just trying to understand the Q&A for the 3750X ,

Q. Are mixed stacks supported?

A. It depends. The Cisco StackWise and StackWise Plus solutions are flexible enough to allow you to:

• Stack any Cisco Catalyst 3750 switch in the same stack (hardware mixed stack)

• Stack any Cisco IOS Software feature set in the same stack (software mixed stack)

One exception is the new LAN Base models being introduced with the Cisco Catalyst 3750-X Series, which can stack only with other LAN Base models.

What Cisco website meant by Software Mixed Stack?

Thanks,

Ismail
