I have a Baystack 470-48t with Software version 3.0.0.5 In production.
I need to add 3 more 470-48T switches in a stack. They have Ver 3.1.5.6
The production switch is Very high priority and cannot be taken down
very long. I created a stack with the 3 switches but when I cable in the
Production switch it will not join the stack, I get this error:
Incompatible Software Revision; module 1 failed to join stack

Anybody know how to get it to join and "AutoUpdate the software"
(Prefered Method"
Or do I have to update then join (Not the prefered method)

Re: Baystack 470 Stack


It only takes about 10 minutes to update the code on the switch.
Do all the switches have the same ISVN rev ?
If you can't take the switch for very long,make one of the new switches
the Master
switch,set the switch on the cascade module to reflect it's capability
and cable the units.

All the New switches do, The original is a few revs back.

I did a test environment experiment. Made one of the new switches the
base, made the OLD software switch just a member(non-base) switch cabled
and rebooted, it still would not join the stack.
So it appears I will have to schedule a downtime to update the software
so it will join the stack.

The ISVN rev may be what's causing this problem.
