We have 6 Cisco 3750-X switches and we would like to configure Stackwise and Stackpower. Stackwise is not an issue, we've done that lots of times and is a technology we're very familiar with. There seems to be some confusion surrounding the combination of Stackwise and Stackpower used together.
Is it possible to run multiple power stacks (1 power stack with 4 switches, 1 power stack with 2 switches), and this be in the same Stackwise stack (shared control/management plane - interfaces 1/0/1 - 6/0/24)?
Cisco StackPower is not supported in switches running the LAN base feature set.
the chapter speaks of power stack(s) as a separate concept from stackwise stack(s)
From the commands help it look like possible to build two power stacks within a wider stackwise stack see
stack-power switch switch-number
Enter the stack member number of the switch in the power stack and enter switch stack power configuration mode. The range is from 1 to 9.
Note Only four switches can belong to the same power stack.
then you specify to what power stack the switch belongs with
Enter the name of the power stack to which the switch belongs. The name can be up to 31 characters. If you do not enter a name and no other switches in the power stack have a name configured, a power-stack name is automatically generated.
So all you need is to define two named power stacks and to associate switch members to one of the two power stacks
Thank you for your detailed configuration instructions however it didn't answer the original question. Is it possible to configure two independent power stacks within one Stackwise group of 6 switches?
