CISCO SGE2010 Switch - - - ports showing as "STACKING"

Hi There,

Recently purchased the CISCO SGE2010 48-Port LAN Switch - issue I have is that ports 24 and 48 are showing up as "STACKING" (under port status) - If I go to "Port Configuration" in an attempt to change "STACKING" to "ENABLE", ports 24 and 48 are not being displayed, all other ports however are.

I've even done a factory reset (soft and hard) but both ports are still showing up as "STACKING" - Any ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Sam.

It's by default. In this switch,  port 24 and 48 are reserved for stacking purpose. I doubt if you would be able to use those 2 ports.

Another thing,

This switch is by default in stacking mode. If you reset to factory default, then everything is reset except the stacking configuration.

To reset the stacking mode option for this switch and to enable the 24 and 48th port, you need to press the hardware reset button in front of the ethernet switch.

Thanks for your response, as mentioned, I have already applied a hard reset of the switch by holding down the reset button in front of the switch itself. The ports are still showing up as saying "STACKING".

Many thanks,

Sam.

Ok, you press the hardware reset. The switch boots. Open the GUI menu. Go to System-->System Management--> System Information-->look at the right side of the screen.

There will be "switch operation mode after reset".

Click that to "standalone".

By default it will be "stack".

Forgot. Reboot once again and see if it's still stand alone.

Setting to "standalone" via GUI still showed as "stack" after reboot - However I did manage to resolve the issue using the console cable via HyperTerminal.

From the Switch Main Menu, select 4. System mode, set 'Stacking mode after reset' to Standalone and Save setting - Then from the Switch Main Menu, select 1. System Configuration Menu, select 10. Reboot System.

After reboot, ports 24 and 48 now showing as 'ENABLE' under port status option.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction surbabu140977.
