Hi Im pretty confused with the way how to configure Per vlan spanning tree on XOS because of the way extreme uses spanning tree domains. Can someone please post a sample configuration on how it would look if you would want RSTP betwen a cisco and a extreme summit switch?

Its been a while since you posted this, but you could try setting the encapsulation mode of the port connecting to Cisco as pvst-plus?
* X250e-24p.2 # con <stpd-name>  add <vlan-name> ports <uplink port/trunk port>
  <cr>            Execute the command
  dot1d           802.1d mode
  emistp          EMISTP mode
  pvst-plus       PVST-Plus mode

Hey Merab,

Below is example of dot1w interoperability with Cisco:


Extreme Configuration (EXOS)

configure vlan test add port 3 tagged

conf vlan "Default" del port 3

create stpd domain_test

conf stpd "domain_test" add vlan "test" ports 1,3 pvst-plus

conf stpd "domain_test" tag 10

con stpd "domain_test" mode dot1w

conf stpd "domain_test" default-encapsulation pvst-plus

conf stpd "domain_test" ports link-type point-to-point 1,3

enable stpd "domain_test"

disable edp port 3


Cisco Configuration (IOS)

configure terminal

interface gigabitEthernet 0/3

no cdp enable

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

switchport mode trunk

switchport nonegotiate

no shutdown


configure terminal

spanning-tree vlan 10

spanning-tree mode pvst

spanning-tree extend system-id


copy run start
