Setting up the Physical Stack

After you have installed the individual switches (see Installing Your 200 Series Switch), follow these steps to create the physical stack.

  1. Connect the switches that will form the stack.
  2. Connect stacking cables to the switches.
  3. Connect the switches to your management network.

After setting up and connecting the switches, you can configure software for the stack as if it were a single switch. See Basic Configuration for Your 200 Series Switch for instructions.
