Re: stack 2 switches HP A 5120 EI

You use IRF to do this (which is superior to stacking because with IRF the device will really function as a single unit meaning you can a single etherchannel with one cable to unit1 and the second cable to unit2, where with stacking etherchannels must terminate in the same physical unit):
