Setup of Stacked Cisco 4500 switches

compdigit44 used Ask the Experts™
I have two 4500 32 port Cisco switches running build 3.11. They are connected via SFP stack cables. What do I need to do in the switch so  the primary switch can see the connected switches ports so they appear as one large switch?

Assuming that these are 4500X series switches, you have to use Virtual Switching to get that result.


The document you listed was very helpful. I almost have the VSS setup. The problem I am having now is a license mismatch and after looking at the results of the sh license all, did not accept the EULA. how do I accept the license EULA?
