Hi,

maybe some switches behave differently, but on a 3560G the only thing that happens is that port f0/2 is blocking, f0/1 ist in forwarding state because of its lower mac-address. but you won't see that port f0/1 has become a reals root port, it's only forwarding.

greetings, Stephan

A loop will be detected and the port will be shutdown.
