Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to purchase XGS2210 or XGS3700 for some office network usage.
I would like to double confirm if these two devices can be configured physical stacking.
If yes what should I pay attention with while setting up the environment?
And can link aggregation setup using the port from slot1, slot2....slotX of the stacks?

Please advice, thanks.

    Hi @Depp_J,

    Welcome to Zyxel community!

    Those two product series support physical stacking, but only with same product series. (EX: XGS2210 can’t stacking with XGS3700)
    Note: The switch in the same physical stacking must have the same firmware version.
    If you want to configure link aggregation using the port from different slots, you may configure the following in CLI: ("slot 1 port 1" and "slot 2 port 1" for example)
    Switch(config)#trunk T1
    Switch(config)#trunk T1 interface 1/1
    Switch(config)#trunk T1 interface 2/1

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the instruction and the reminding of the same firmware version.
    I had bought 2 XGS3700-24 and configured stacking on both devices.

    According to the link-aggregation, does LACP works too?

    Thanks.

    Hi @Depp_J,

    The LACP feature is available in stacking mode, so you may enable LACP to let it work.
    If follow the example "slot 1 port 1" and "slot 2 port 1", the CLI will be like:
    Switch(config)#lacp
    Switch(config)#trunk T1
    Switch(config)#trunk T1 lacp
    Switch(config)#trunk T1 nterface 1/1
    Switch(config)#trunk T1 interface 2/1

    Hope it helps.

    Hi Jason,

    Stacking and link-aggregation works fine now.

    Thanks for the help!
