Stack with different revision members - EX4200-48T

‎11-06-2018 11:12 PM

Hi,

 

We have STACK with 4 x EX4200-48T switches with hardware REV 18.

At the moment we are considering buying one more (refurbished), but it is REV 06. According to the output of the "show chassis hardware detail",  they have the same PART number. Are they compatible to be in the same STACK (Virtual chassis)?

 

Is there a document for Revisions compatibility?

Hi,

I don't know documentation for that, but I use the different revision number of EX-4200 series as a virtual chassis within two different environments. (REV 23,REV 16- REV 23, REV 15)



If this worked for you please flag my post as an "Accepted Solution" so others can benefit.

Compatibility for virtual chassis is based only on the major model number of the switch the minor revision numbers do not matter.  You will need all the ex devices to be on the same version of Junos.
