Wow, very very impressive of Maximilian to spot it. I've never seen or noticed that option myself. Good on you for being so observant.
I must admit i haven't verified Maximilian's find, because really I can never use that feature of the 300 series.
I would think we could not expect you to bypass the startup process via a console cable and modify a mode this switch wasn't destined to do.
The SRW2XX -K9 or as it is known as the 300 series was not meant to be a stacking switch solution or a replacement for the SFE2XXX or SGE2XXX series stackable switches.
When you enter the menu items via telnet or console, post the switch startup, you can put the switch into layer 3 mode, but stacking is greyed out and cannot be altered.
The bottom line is, switch stacking is not supported by the Small Business Support Center (SBSC) on the 300 series switch.
I have absolutely no idea if version 22.214.171.124 really does support a full stacking feature set. Be a shame to install a unsupported feature set in a business environment and then try to get support on it. I couldn't blame the good folk at SBSC asking you to factory reset the unit.
I understand and agree that stacking is not a supported feature of the SG300 series. I was hoping to get confirmation that the feature is in the console menu (by mistake) but does not actually work. (for future reference)
yeah even if you set stacking mode and stackID, nothing special happens afterwards. you also can not configure anything else which have to do with stacking. I thought maybe it is planned for the future, maybe something like stacking via PortChannels or via one fibre uplink between 2 Swtiches.
Actually i dont really need the stacking function, i was just interessted as i found this startup menu.
Could be a good idea, to patch this out in next FW.
