Hi there,

I am looking at the best way of configuring STP on two summit switches as an example

switch 1 ports 1 T vlan 10, ports 2 T vlan 20 port 3 U vlan 30, Ports 23,24 are Tagged on Vlans 10,20,30.
switch 2 ports 1 T vlan 10, ports 2 T vlan 20 port 3 U vlan 30, Ports 23,24 are Tagged on Vlans 10,20,30.

ports 23,24 are our Trunk ports

how would i get STP running on ports 23/24 to prevent a loop. should i be looking a MSTP or somthing else?

Thanks

minhsall82, have you considered configuring EAPS? It is much easier and faster. If you need assistance with that, let us know.

Hi,

would you be able to provide me with some guidence on setting EAPS - will this also enable protection on ports from loops created by 3rd part switch (if someone connects a HP switch and causes a loop)


Thanks

Here is a link to EAPS in the Extreme Concept Guide:

EAPS won't work with third party devices.

Hello,

Try setting up RSTP. When adding trunk ports to the RSTP domain, add the ports as EMISTP mode. Then define those port/link types as point-to-point.
Let me know if this helps any?
