I used 2 XS3800-28 switches for stacking.

Switches have 28 ports, of which 21-28 are combo ports.

When stacking, 2 pairs of comboports (25-26, 27-28) become unavailable. Is this normal behavior?

How to properly stack on a ring topology:

1)
SW1 port 28 - SW2 port 27

SW1 port 27 - SW2 port 27;

or

2)
SW1 port 28 - SW2 port 28

SW1 port 26 - SW2 port 26

    Hi @Smartqwerty,

    The 2 pairs of combo ports (25-26, 27-28) are used for stacking, so it is normal these ports are not available.

    To stack on a ring topology, please use (2) to connect your XS3800s.

    In addition, ports 25-26 are stacking channel 1, and ports 27-28 are stacking channel 2.
