All switch members of the stack should be running the same IOS.

Hi Leo Laohoo, If we connect

Hi Leo Laohoo,

 

If we connect my new switch (2960 X 15.0(2) ver to old stack switch(2960 S 12.2(55r)SE ver)

 

1) Is there is any conflict to replace a switch with higher ver(15.2) than stack switch(12.2)

2) Are all the other old stack switches in the stack upgrade to new ver 15.0

3) Is new switch automatically configured from stack master

 

Thanks in advance

If your existing stack is running 12.2 then your new switch, with 15.X, won't join the stack. 

3) Is new switch automatically configured from stack master

If the new switch has the same IOS version as the existing stack, NO.  The new switch will be a member of the stack.  You will have to manually configure the switch priority so during a reboot the switch of your choice will automatically become the stack master.  

2) Are all the other old stack switches in the stack upgrade to new ver 15.0

I really do not understand this question.

In our stack have 4 switch

In our stack have 4 switch with  2960S (12.2(55r)SE ver), We need to replace 2 new switch  with higher ver (2960 X 15.0(2) .

 

1)If your existing stack is running 12.2 then your new switch, with 15.X, won't join the stack

        I)If we need to upgrade(all or only master) the old stack switch (not replacing) from old version to new ver 15.0(2) before connect new switch in the stack with ver (15.0)

 

 Please explain the procurer to connect  2 switch in the stack.

Thanks advance.
