2930F (JL254A) VSF using SFP?



I've successfully stack 2930F (JL254A) by using 1Gb BaseT to 1Gb BaseT.


Can I stack the 2 switches by using the 10Gb SFP port with the SFP cable directly?

I read somewhere that it needs to be a directly link, so no transit in between the 2 stacking ports, so I assume SFP to optic fiber converter option is not applicable here.


If so, would any cable work? or I would need the special DAC SFP+ from HPE?

You can use the 1g copper ports or the 10g SFP+ ports.  In the 10g SFP+, you can either use transceivers and fiber or DAC cables.


You can find more details starting on page 698 of the Advanced Traffic Management Guide for the 2930F Switch Series.

One thing to note, the VSF links need to be either 1g to 1g or 10g to 10g.
