S2500-48P-4x10G - Four Gb Ports

    Posted Sep 02, 2021 12:18 PM

    First time I have purchased Aruba.  Worked with them in various customer environments but..  on a budget trying to support POC/Demo lab.  

    I needed 4 x 10Gb (I have three hosts each with 10Gb NIC for vSAN block), VLANs, Basic VLAN routing,  24 ports, and something to play with ansible to configure with IaC as I am supporting more of those requests.

    I know it is an older switch but it is budget...

    What I did not realize is .. it has 4 x 10Gb  but two noted as stacking ports.  Two (0/1/0 and 0/1/1) are standard 10Gb but I do not see means to change mode on the "stacking" ports to be standard 10Gb.

    Hoping their is option / command I am missing.

    Yes, you missed a command ;-)

    Here is how to remove stacking from ports on MAS switches (like S2500), and you can use all 4 ports as normal 10G SFP+ ports.

    That worked.   Just did not get the correct google.  I also looked in the admin manual.. just not well enough it would seem.

    (sw0) #show   stacking interface brief


    Interface      Admin      Operational    Link       Hardware

    ---------      -----      -----------    ----       --------

    stack1/2       Enable     Down           Down       Present

    stack1/3       Enable     Down           Down       Present

    (sw0) #delete stacking interface stack 1/2

    (sw0) #delete stacking interface stack 1/3

    (sw0) #show interface brief | include GE0/1/

    GE0/1/0    Enable  Down  Down           N/A

    GE0/1/1    Enable  Down  Down           N/A

    GE0/1/2    Enable  Down  Down           N/A

    GE0/1/3    Enable  Down  Down           N/A
