Re: Help with stacking

You need to move some stuff to the new modules. Do not use both X7 and X8 for stacking or otherwise. With all those new ports you should free up X7 and X8 and stack between your new FF and old FF modules with X6 or another free port. X7 and X8 act as internal failover stacking links between partner modules (bay 1 and bay 2 for example).
