RSTP problem

Unanswered Question
Sep 23rd, 2007

Hi all,

I have 2 switches connected to each other via wireless links. I am trying to balance traffic per vlan basis changing cost's of trunking interfaces, but the problem is that when the primary wireless fails the stp converges everything looks ok but traffic didn't go through the backup link, also when primary link comes back it takes too long to switchover primary link. The wireless bridges have rstp enabled and cisco 2950 also.

I have this problem too.

check the connectivity bt disabling stp or rstp. I do not believe the issue is related to the Catalyst switches in his environment but the Wireless bridges. BR1310 should forward BPDU when STP is disabled on the devices. However, there's an outstanding Bug

CSCed94862 please see the bug - bridge does not forward SSTP message when STP is disabled.

Here is a link that will help explain RSTP.
