    are you sure 4500 support stacking 10gb links ?

    I know 3com stacking can be a pita sometimes, I had to follow the manual to do it, and there was some command line trickery involved IIRC.

    I suggest you follow the manual and then post any problems

    We have updated all the switches with the s3q05_02_00s56 firmware, then using the manual i have config the switches as follows:

    [SwitchA]
    system-view
    stack ip-pool 192.168.1.1 24
    stack role master
    stack stack-port 1 ten-gigabitethernet 1/1/1

    [SwitchB]
    system-view
    stack stack-port 1 ten-gigabitethernet 1/1/1

    [SwitchC]
    system-view
    stack stack-port 1 ten-gigabitethernet 1/1/1

    On the master stack if i display stack members it just show the master, if i do the same on the slaves, it errors saying not in a stack?

    This is the document I followed, IIRC I just setup the 4500's so that all three were managed as one, the 5500's we had I setup with XRN clustering. Sorry I can't be more helpful with your specifics.
