There is physical loop detected on Extremex250e-24t switch,due to this entire network went down at one of our customer site.
Is anybody can help me how to block the port if the loop is detected on the switch?

So that in future if physical loop detected on the switch then port will automatically blocked it.

please let me know the procedure for the same.

Thanks in advanced!!!

Hi Gunvant,

You could use ELRP in this case to disable the ports.

Here is the article to help on how to configure it.

ELRP is proprietary and many times better, but you can use standard MSTP (spanning tree) 802.1s based protection

Or setup STP:  (Stole this from a few friends of mine.  But this is a good working STP config)

    # Module stp configuration.   #
    configure mstp region Perlman
    create stpd Perlman_stm
    configure stpd Perlman_stm mode dot1w
    configure stpd s0 delete vlan default ports all
    disable stpd s0 auto-bind vlan default
    configure stpd Perlman_stm add vlan Perlman ports 1:1 emistp
     
    #Each edge port should be configured with edge-safegaurd and bpdu-restrict
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports mode emistp 1:1
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports cost auto 1:1
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports port-priority 128 1:1
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports link-type edge 1:1
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports edge-safeguard enable 1:1
    configure stpd Perlman_stm ports bpdu-restrict enable 1:1
    enable stpd Perlman_stm ports 1:1
    enable stpd Perlman_stm

Thanks Jeremy,

I have tried with this also but didnot work.I am if anybody is connecting cable back to back on the switch then port should be blocked on untaged port.

if you can help me in step by step configuration then that will be really great for me.

Hi,

the x250e is supported by EXOS 15.3, but not by newer EXOS versions. In 15.3, ELRP is configured with:
configure elrp-client periodic VLANNAME ports PORTLIST interval 1 log disable-port duration 300
enable elrp-client
This configuration can disable every port on which an ELRP PDU is received.
configure elrp-client disable-ports exclude PORTLIST
If you have an older EXOS version, the commands might be a bit different, but in this case you should upgrade to the supported EXOS 15.3 anyway.

Best regards,
Erik

i am doing simulation in our lab with x150-24t switch version 12.0.2.25.But some of the commands are not supported like "disable-port duration 300" is not taking it after log.

"configure elrp-client disable-ports exclude PORTLIST" and this is also not taking it.

Could you please suggest what should i do to complete this testing?

Hi,

to complete the testing you need to update EXOS to a version that actually supports disabling ports via ELRP. EXOS version 12.0 does not provide this feature. The first EXOS version to provide this feature was 12.5.3.

The recommended EXOS version for X150 and X250 switches is EXOS 15.3.5.2-patch1-9 (see http://documentation.extremenetworks.com/hw_sw_compatibility/HardwareSoftwareCompatibility/r_exos-re...). You should consider upgrading to that firmware version.

Best regards,
Erik
