Configuring Switch Stacks using UI Groups

Aruba Central supports both Backplane stacking (BPS) and Virtual Switching Framework (VSF) switch stacking. You can create switch stacks and add stack members through the UI. The stack configuration is possible only when the switches are online.

Stacks created using UI groups can only be managed in a UI group. If a device is moved to a template group, then the device cannot be managed in a UI group without rebuilding the stack.

SFP is a compact, hot-pluggable transceiver that is used for both telecommunication and data communications applications. ports are manageable in a UI group when the stack is created. These modules are available for configuration at the device level context.
