VSF Best Practices for the Aruba CX 6300 Switch Series

Greetings!

 

We're kicking off 2020 by releasing our latest best practices guide — this time, we're covering VSF deployment and maintenance on the Aruba CX 6300 switch family. Deploy, maintain, and troubleshoot 6300 VSF stacks using either the Aruba CX mobile app or switch CLI.

 

As always, feel free to provide feedback or suggestions in this thread!

Re: VSF Best Practices for the Aruba CX 6300 Switch Series

Should it be possible to stack switches with copper cables? At least the mobile app doesn't seem to recognize other member if I use 1Gbps ethernet from ports 23 -> 24 and 24 -> 23.

 

Asking as I haven't received the proper DAC cables yet but would like to try VSF

Only the SFP56 ports can be used for VSF links.

Is there a 'unsupported-transceiver' command for 6300F :)?

Re: VSF Best Practices for the Aruba CX 6300 Switch Series

Hi Matt

 

Am I reading it right that these new products do not have a method for an 'in service' or fast software upgrade when the switches are stacked in pair..  or am I missing something in the documentation/oversight in the documentation?

 

Thanks

Yes no ISSU or fast software upgrade on 6300

Re: VSF Best Practices for the Aruba CX 6300 Switch Series

My experience with 6300M VSF:

- Configure everything either manually or using the Mobile App

- Everything is working

- Remove power from the switches.

- Connect the switches to power

- Wait

- Only master works; all others get stuck on boot.
