Hi Thangaraj,

 

The answer to your question is no.

 

VSF can be achived only using 10gig and 40gig.

Re: VSF Configuration with 1 Gig copper interface

Hi Thangaraj,

 

I think 1Gbit can be used for VSF. In the past this didn't work but since the latest firmware release (WC.16.04.0010) it should. I haven't test this myself. 

 

Copy from the release notes.

 

VSF CR_0000238068

Symptom: The switch fails to form a VSF stack when using a 1G connection for a VSF switch link.

Scenario: The switch fails to form the VSF stack when the VSF link is configured for a 1G interface. The standby switch reboot process triggered by the stack role election process hangs at "Initializing…"., while the commander switch reports a warning event log message similar to: I 01/01/90 00:04:00 03279 stacking: ST1-CMDR: Member 2 (941882-11c860) chosen as standby.Reason: Only available standby W 01/01/90 00:06:03 03838 chassis: ST1-CMDR: Co-Processor failed to boot. Timeout reached: System initialization failure

Workaround: Configure the VSF link on 10G interfaces.

 

Regards,

Willem

Re: VSF Configuration with 1 Gig copper interface

Aruba 2930F Switch Series do support VSF on 1G and 10G interfaces. You can use RJ45 1G ports or 1G SFP, or 10G SFP+ to support VSF stacking. The reference here to an issue in one particular release, which is about to be fixed with a new release. 

 

They have always been able to stack with 1G ports, as long as VSF has been supported.

Re: VSF Configuration with 1 Gig copper interface

tested it using rj45 and it works as long as your image is 16.03 or higher... aruba 2930f switch I used.
