XSM7224S: stacking capabilites

Hi,

I need some 10Gbits/s switches with stacking capabilities. We will have several servers (serv1, serv2, serv3, ... ) and several SAN devices (SAN1, SAN2, SAN3,...), connecting to two 10Gbit/s switches (sw1, sw2).
Each of the devices will have two 10Gbit/s ethernet network cards. One of the will be connected to switch 1 (sw1), the other to switch 2 (sw2).
switch 1 and 2 should be stacked, so I can use LACP between all those 10Gbit/s pairs. every device is sharing the same vlan/subnet.

e.g.
port 1 on sw1 connects to port 1 on serv1
port 1 on sw2 connects to port 2 on serv1
LACP is activated on port 1 on sw1, port 1 on sw2, port 1 on serv1 and port 2 on serv1

Again, sw1 and sw2 are stacked. Will this setup work on XSM7224S series?

Well, I can answer the question myself. Although I haven´t looked in the switch´s documentation, I found a notice within the specification sheet:

"Distributed LACP across the stack" is mentioned. So it supposed to be working.

Nethertheless, has anyone worked with the XSM7224S switch so far? I really can´t finy any real review or user experience, except one named "XSM7224S 2011013101 Performance Assessment18 22213.pdf".

Perhaps anyone has some experience with these devices doing ISCSI?
