Inserting and Removing Firepower 8000 Series Network Modules
Stacking Configuration Considerations
A stacking module combines the resources of two or more identically configured appliances. See
Firepower 8000 Series Stacking Module, page 3-9
models support stacking. Configure the modules as follows for stacked devices:
the "8000 Series Device Stacking" chapter in the Firepower Management Center Configuration Guide
for information about managing device stacks with your Firepower Management Center.
Your module assembly kit includes a T8 Torx screwdriver and one or more of the following modules:
Use this dual-slot NetMod only on the 40G-capacity Firepower 8250 or Firepower or AMP 8350. If you
need to upgrade your device, see the Cisco 8000 Series Device 40G Capacity Upgrade Guide.
Firepower 82xx Family and 83xx Family Primary Device
You can use a device stack as you would a single device in your deployment, with a few exceptions.
If you have Firepower 8000 Series devices in a high-availability pair, you cannot stack a device
high-availability pair or a device in a high-availability pair.
When replacing NetMods on a stacked configuration, complete all procedures on the secondary
units first, then perform any replacements on the primary unit.
Install NetMods on the primary device only.
Install one stacking module on the primary device for each stacked secondary device, and one
stacking module on each secondary device.
