I need to setup a basic stp domain using an X670 (EXOS 15.2) to enable fast failover between the primary link - a 10G fibre connection, and a secondary link - a 100M wireless link. Obviously the preferred service is the 10G fibre.
Both links will carry a number of tagged vlans. But I'm not sure I need to configure vlan specific stp config. I also believe that I can enable a separate spanning the instance just to control the links. Does that make sense?
So on the X670 is it something like this:
create stpd s10
configure stpd s10 ports link-type point-to-point 3,4
Things I'm not sure about:
How do I ensure that the faster link is always selected?
What controls the failover timing, in both directions?
Do I need to do specific config to account for the VLANs tagged on these ports? That is, is it not sufficient to just configure the setup on a port basis, irrespective of the VLAN configuration of those ports?
The other end of the link is not Extreme but Comware 5.20 based HP (h3c) so I don't expect this forum to be familiar with that but if so I'd appreciate pointers on its config too.
