Aruba 3810M switches can be stacked using either a physical or virtual stacking method, depending on the specific model and firmware version. Physical stacking requires the use of dedicated stacking modules and stacking cables to connect the switches. With physical stacking, the switches operate as a single logical unit and share a single IP address, which simplifies network management. Virtual stacking, on the other hand, does not require any additional hardware and instead relies on the Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) technology built into the Aruba 3810M switches. With VSF, multiple switches can be configured to act as a single virtual switch, with a single management interface and control plane. To stack Aruba 3810M switches using either method, the switches must be running the appropriate firmware version that supports stacking. You will also need to configure the switches according to the appropriate stacking guidelines provided by Aruba. MyFortiva

Subject: Aruba 3810m switches in stack
I have two (aruba-3810m-16sfp) switches stacked with ring topology member 1 status is commander and member 2 status is standby. I've configured the ports 1/16 and 2/16 with the same exact configuration. The problem is when connecting the end device to the port 2/16 the port comes up and the device becomes reachable which is fine. When connecting the same end device using the same DAC cable to the port 1/16 the port comes up but the device is unreachable ! .. any ideas ? I also checked the logs and nothing pointing to this issue.
