13.2 Configuring RSTP through the Command Line Interface
13.2.1 Normal RSTP
The commands to setup and configure RSTP are as follows. The set stp command sets
the switch to support RSTP or STP. It is necessary to save and reboot the switch after this
set stp type=<stp|rstp> -
rstp command enters the RSTP configuration mode and enables/disabled RSTP. By
default, RSTP is disabled and has to be manually activated.
The syntax for the
port command on RSTP is shown below.
port port=<number|list|range> [status=<enable|disable>] [migration=<enable>]
p2p parameter sets the “point-to-point” value to off on all ports connected to shared
LAN segments (i.e. connections to hubs). The default value is
auto. P2P ports would
typically be end stations or computers on the network.
edge parameter enables/disables all ports connected to other hubs, bridges and
switches as edge ports.
migration parameter is set for all ports connected to devices such as hubs, bridges
and switches known to support IEEE 802.1d STP services but not RSTP services
show active-stp command displays whether STP or RSTP is running.
show stp command display the RSTP or STP parameters.
show stp <config|ports>
