stack 10 C3750X????

What would happen if you stack 10 C3750X switches? I 've stacked 9 all the ports are active and I need about 12 moreOK


Unless you are willing to try

Unless you are willing to try it on your stack I suggest you ask your cisco rep. 9 is normally the max so it may be restricted in code just so people don't try this. Otherwise get a mgt address just directly connect another switch via normal ports and trunk and etherchannel to the bottom switch

My understanding, all the 3750 series stacks are limited to 9 units, i.e. you shouldn't be able to stack a 10th stack member.  Unsure what will happen if you physically connect 10 stack members.


Assuming it doesn't work, you can, of course, just attach the 10th switch as a standalone unit to the stack.  You could setup MEC to the stack.


BTW, not too long ago, Cisco documented 3750X stack module ports have as much dedicated buffer RAM as 24 edge ports, so depending how busy you expect the 10th standalone 3750 might be, you might want to use module ports.
