  • Connect ("daisy-chain") all stack members with stacking cables as shown here: WS-C2960X Stacking Guide
  • Power on all stack members
  • Connect one switch to your network (via the Mgmt interface)
  • Connect to the serial console of the same switch
  • Configure the Mgmt interface (FastEthernet 0)
  • Check connectivity: ping
  • Install the new IOS firmware on all stack mambers simultaneously using this command:
    • archive download-sw /force-reload /overwrite tftp://
  • Important: You must use the .tar version of the IOS image, the .bin version won't work with the archive download-sw command.
