C3500XL software features

Does anyone know if version WC5 for the 3500XL and 2900XL supports the new 3550 and 2950 series of switches in a stack. I know version WC5a and WC7 does but it also has issues with VLAN connectivity so I don't want to get into those problems.

Re: C3500XL software features


Read the release notes of WC5:

If you mean stack feature uplinkfast its okey for WC5 too.

If a switch stack contains both Catalyst 3550 switches and Catalyst 2900 XL or Catalyst 3500 XL switches, Cross-Stack UplinkFast (CSUF) is not enabled if the management VLAN on the Catalyst 2900 XL or 3500 XL switches is changed to a VLAN other than VLAN 1 (the default).

The workaround is to make sure that the management VLAN of all Catalyst 2900 XL or 3500 XL switches in the stack is set to VLAN 1. (CSCdv79737) .

Re: C3500XL software features

I am concerned with the stack of 2900's being able to recognize the new switch. I know that 120-5.WC7 displays the switch correctly but 120-5.2XU sees the switch as an unknown device because the switch was released after that software.
