Hi all, We are migrating our core network with Extreme Networks that already are four rings running Easp, but right now not all of my switches are Extreme and the dont run Eaps, so I want to run PVST with some of them (Extreme and other brands) to make redundancy when I cant make Eaps  , obviously with different vlans. Is it possible to do that on the same switch and the same ring, run PVST and Eaps at the same time?

Thank you in advance

Hi Edison,

you should be able to use both EAPS and STP on the same switch.

If you plan to use PVST between ExtremeXOS and Cisco switches, you need to consider that they are configured in completely different ways on the two platforms. EXOS PVST is not the same as Cisco PVST, they are compatible if configured correctly (which can be a bit tricky).
