    MISTP on a Netvanta 1534p

    chrismic New Member

      I am trying to configure MISTP on a group of 1534p running  R10.6.0, I can not find any documentation for configuration nor can I find any commands that will let me create a MISTP?  The only options are RSTP and STP, is this possible on these switches?

       

       

      Thanks,

          chrismic - Thanks for posting your question on the forum!

           

          MISTP (multiple instance spanning tree protocol) is an IEEE standard which allows you to group multiple VLANs under a single instance of spanning tree. Unfortunately, at the time of this post, AOS products do not support MISTP.

              So is there any way to disable spanning tree or excluded certain VLANs from spanning tree in AOS?

                  petersjncv - You cannot disable spanning-tree by VLAN, but you can disable spanning-tree by switchport. This can only be done in the CLI from within the switchport interface command set. You would simply need to enable the BPDU filter and guard for each switchport that you wish not to participate in spanning-tree. This will prevent BPDU packets from being sent and received on that port.  An example of how to do this is below:

                   

                  switch(config)#int switchport 0/1

                  switch(config-swx 0/1)# spanning-tree bpdufilter enable

                  switch(config-swx 0/1)# spanning-tree bpduguard enable

                   

                  Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any further questons.
