Connect new E4210G to old HTC5600-26C (in Stack)

Hi everybody,


we have 3 HTC5600-26C switches in a stack and we want to connect a new HP E4210-48G to this stack.  Unfortunately there are no extension modules available for the HTC5600. The only way to connect the HP E4210 to the HTC-stack is on some 1GB ports. Can we build on each switch a trunk or a link aggregation? And if it is possible, how many ports can we stack together? We want a connection between 10GB an 15GB.


A Note: The new HP E4210-48G will connect to another HP E4210-48G at 10GbE SFP fiber (JD368B + JD092B), 300 feets away in another server room.


many thanks

Thomas K.

Hi Thomas


The H3C5600 is the same as the HP E5500G. you can use the modules from it.


if you wont try it: you can create a linkaggregation with max 8x 1Gbit betwenn the H3C5600 and the 4210G
