From my reading, it appears that the catalysts do not support pure RSTP, can anyone confirm this?
By pure RSTP, I mean plain old 802.1D-2004 compliant behavior. I am looking for a single tree structure so Rapid-PVST is out of the question.
The Catalysts do have RSTP over MST, that works by using instance 0 to maintain a single tree running RSTP. This uses MST BPDU's which wastes bandwidth because they contain extraneous information that the RSTP-only switch does not look at.
Responses appreciated, thanks.
