We have two core 6509 switches at our main site.
All users and servers (with the exception of a training room that has only one path to only one of the core switches) uplink directly to either one switch or the other.
The two switches have a trunk between them on the SUP.
We are implementing some redundant paths on the servers via teamed NICs, but there are no access switchs to deal with.
I have some general questions about STP:
In the situation above, is STP really an issue?
I saw in an earlier post that the layer 2 and layer 3 path should be the same.
How can I determine my traffic path for Layer 2?
We have PVST configured, and switch 1 has the below in it's config:
spanning-tree vlan 1-2,4-8,10-12,14-15,26,28-30,35,40,50,55,70 priority 16384
But I see no priority configured in switch 2
When I do a "sh spanning-tree root" on switch 2, I see the the root port as the trunk (to the vlans shown above) as switch 1, which makes sense, but I am not sure what it is accomplishing.
