I currently have 2 Dell powerconnect 6248 Switches and they are in a stack. these were setup previously to me so I am unfamiliar on how they work. I can access them via the web browser at IP 192.168.1.4 and from there I can select Unit 1 or 2.
Anyways I need to add a 3rd but this time I can not use the XG ports on the read to stack it. I need to use the SFP ports and use a Fiber Optic cable as it is for an expansion on the other side of the building. The cable is only 30m so it should not be a problem there. I just need to know what steps to take to add the 3rd switch.
I see in the management console that I can go to stacking and add. From there I can select the model of the switch. Do I need to do anything else to this new switch to prep it?
The switches are not setup with anything fancy, just switching. There is no Vlans, routing or anything like that setup on them, just over-glorified hubs.
