Stacking Aruba-2930F 48G 4SFP

First off I am a complete novice with switches...

I am looking at stacking a couple of 2930-F's using a DAC cable so  

 

Switch 1 I have done  -

(config)# vsf member 1 link 1 52

(config)# vsf enable domain 1

 

Switch 2 I have done  -

(config)# vsf member 2 link 1 52

(config)#  vsf enable domain 1

 

when I run Show VSF it says it is active.

 

So I preume so far so good?

 

I also have a spare cable so for redundancy I was thinking about using it on port  51 on each switch so using the below -

 

Switch 1 I have done  -

(config)# vsf member 1 link 2 51

(config)# vsf enable domain 1

 

Switch 2 I have done  -

(config)# vsf member 2 link 2 51

(config)#  vsf enable domain 1

 

would this add extra redundancy just in case the first cable was pulled out?

Yes it does...since this is a two members VSF...why creating a second VSF Link per Switch (vsf link 2) to add VSF Link redundancy for existing VSF Link (vsf link 1)?

 

If I were you I will add port 51 (of both ends) to existing VSF Link made of only port 52, this way:

 

vsf member 1 link 1 1/51

vsf member 2 link 1 2/51 (since you're adding port 51 of 2nd VSF Member on its VSF Link 1)

 

Then validate VSF Link status with:

 

show vsf link detail

 

Isn't reasonable?
