1)As per Juniper doc. ex4300-48T and EX4300-32F can be configured in Virtual chassis without mixed mode.
What if we still configure them as mixed mode? The reason I said that later on if we have to add another say EX4200 into the Virtual chassis , then we do not need to go back and change the mode to mixed. Am I correct? we must not use mixed mode when connecting EX 4300-48T and EX4300-32F?
2) Juniper doc says
You can interconnect a maximum of 10 EX4300 switches to form a Virtual Chassis. You can operate these interconnected switches as a single, logical device with a single IP address.
You can use the following ports to configure an EX4300 switch in a Virtual Chassis:
For 24-port and 48-port EX4300 switches except EX4300-48MP and EX4300-48MP-S switches:
QSFP+ ports configured as VCPs
SFP+ uplink module ports configured as VCPs
For 32-port EX4300 switches:
QSFP+ ports (built-in) or QSFP+ uplink module ports configured as VCPs
The four built-in SFP+ ports on 32-port EX4300 switches cannot be configured as VCPs.
Is that correct we can not use built-in SFP+ ports for Virtual chassis ?
Thanks and have a nice weekend!!
Thanks for the response.
I was just curious how would Virtual Chassis behave I used the wrong mode. As per your links, Juniper has listed the possible combinations for EX 4300 and what mode they should be set to. What happens if we do not se the mode right?
Unfortunately, I did not have the hardware to test so I thought somebody may have done it and share his/her experience.
Have a nice weekend!!
