Catalyst 4960 flexstack problems

After much difficulty I finally was able to stack 2 catalyst 4960ts switches. When I use the command show switch it shows both switches in stack. Member number 2 for some reason none of the Ethernet ports are working and I am not sure how to get in and manage both.  Any ideas?

Can you post a 'show switch' and a 'show version'?

A side note: since stacking them, when I use cisco network assistant, it gets stuck at 88% processing discovered devices.

The master runs an older version of IOS than the member:

The stack will form, but it won't operate correctly. You should upgrade them both to the same version:

Would I have to break the stack before I upgrade?

TimotiStCommented:
The master can upgrade the members without actually breaking the stack, but the switches might reboot a few times.
