brocade switch VDX

I got 2 vdx6740 Brocade switches and when I do show ip interface brief, I only see the first 48 ports even though it shows 96 ports in the config. Any ideas why? Thx

because Brocade vdx6740 switch have 48 ports. Where do you see 96 ports? Maybe in the logical config if the switches are merged/stacked, but again this is a logical config, which is a sum of the 2 switches of 48 ports each.


Yes. Each switch is a 48-port. I believe they are stacked. That is why I see 96 ports in the config. How do I check if they are stacked? Thx

Don't know. I suggest you to have a look at the switch admin guide.

Maybe you only have 48 ports at layer 3?  Do a show int bri.
