Faq (WS-C2960X-48TS-L)

Is there a separate SFP uplink module to buy and add to WS-C2960X-48TS-L switch?

For the SFP uplinks you need to purchase separately, Supported SFP module:

GLC-SX-MMD, multimode Fiber, 550M

GLC-LH-SMD, Single-mode, 10KM range ; Mulitmode, 550M range

GLC-ZX-SM, Single-mode fiber, 70KM range

GLC-EX-SMD, single-mode, 40KM range

Do I need a software license for the WS-C2960X-48TS-L?

No. Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series Switches use the Universal image, but no license is required. The feature set is bound to the hardware model type and cannot be changed. For convenience, a single software image is used for all Cisco Catalyst 2960-X switches, regardless of whether they are IP Lite, LAN Base, or LAN Litemodels.

Can the WS-C2960X-48TS-L feature set license be upgraded?

No. The feature set is bound to the hardware model. To get the features and capabilities of IP Lite, you must purchase an IP Lite switch.

Can the WS-C2960X-48TS-L be the stack master in a mixed stack of 2960-S and 2960-X switches?

Yes, it can.

 What is the minimum Cisco IOS Software version required for FlexStack-Extended?

FlexStack-Extended is supported from version 15.2(6)E onward.

 Can LAN Base and IP Lite feature set models stack together in the WS-C2960X-24PS-L?

No, LAN Base and IP Lite feature set models cannot be stacked together. LAN Base feature set models can stack with LAN Base feature set models only. Similarly, IP Lite feature set models can stack with IP Lite feature set models only.

Can we use FlexStack stacking modules with WS-C2960X-48TS-L?

No. The form factors of FlexStack-Plus and FlexStack modules are different. The FlexStack stacking module cannot be used with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-X Series. Similarly, the FlexStack-Plus module cannot be used with the Cisco Catalyst 2960-S Series.

Can both USB Type B console and RJ-45 console ports be used simultaneously?

 No. Only one can be used for input, but both can receive output. When the USB console is connected, “it is used for input (by default)”. This design allows the administrator to see when the USB console port is in use. This capability is useful for remote administrators.

Can Cisco Catalyst 2960-X switches and 2960-XR switches stack together?

No. Cisco Catalyst 2960-X and 2960-XR switches can’t stack together since they don’t share common feature set model.

What can I do with the USB Type A port of the WS-C2960X-48TS-L?

It is used to connect to an external USB memory drive for additional storage. This USB port can be used to perform software upgrades, store configurations, and even write memory core dumps for troubleshooting purposes. All Cisco USB memory drives can be used. Currently up to 8-GB USB drives are supported.
