IRF Between A5830AF-48 and A5830AF-96

Can IRF Fabric be confiugred between A5830-48 and A5830-96 series switches?  I don't have 96 port switch in the lab to test it out.  I don't see why not, but A5830 manuals says no and it doesn't make any sense. 

 

Thanks

The switches in an IRF fabric must be the same model. For example, an A5830AF-48G and an

A5830AF-96G cannot form an IRF fabric.  

 

I created my IRF with a 5820-24XG and two 5800-48G-POE using DAC cables.  You can have up to 9 switches in this configuration.  You could do a 5820-24XG and three 5800-48G-POE (JC104A) switches.  JC104A come with POE ports and 4 x 10 Gbps SFP+ ports.  5820-24XG have 24 x 10 Gbps ports.
