X590 Stacking

X590 series switches can be stacked with other X590 switches, with X690 switches, X695 switches, and with X870 switches. X590 series switches support native stacking using front-panel data ports 29 and 33.

Alternate stacking is not supported for X590 switches.

The stacking-support option is disabled by default for all X590 switches. For more information, see Enabling and Disabling the Stacking-Support Option.
