Stacking Virtual Connect (VC) FlexFabric modules question

Joe had a question about stacking links for VC modules:

 

***********

 

When I had an enclosure with 4 VC Flex-10/10d modules the enclosure reported stacking link errors until I cabled the modules together. Does the same apply to the VC FlexFabric modules ?

 

************

 

Reply from Dave:

Yes, all VC Ethernet modules need to be stacked, whether horizontal or vertical.

 

And the same info from Chad:

Yes, all Ethernet modules in a VC domain must be stacked together

 

*************

 

Comments or questions?

However for the vertical VC modules the stacking will be in the enclosure midplane and no need for external cables, right?

Hi,

 

Only the vertical modules are stacked automatically via the enclosure midplane...

 

Vertical modules (so for instance 1 and 3) should be stacked with external cables...
