Hi

Looking at the log.. is port Gi 2/15 an access port or trunk port? If you are carrying multiple vlans you will have to configure port Gi 2/15 as a trunk port

switch#

switch#config t

switch3#int g 2/15

switch#switchport mode trunk

It looks as though the connected switch is trying to forward a BPDU and it is being blocked....

I would also check your VTP configuration on your switches looks like you have inconsistent configurations. Looks like you have another switch connected on port G2/24

I would start by checking how the port Gi2/15 is configured and then review your VTP configuration across your switches. Be very careful though as if you have 50 switches connected and your VTP configuration is not configured properly you risk the possibility that you could wipe all VLAN information!!! Approach with a lot of caution. Start by trying to identify the VTP servers, clients, mode they are configured in, etc and then map it out with a document before making any changes..I understand why you are using VTP with the amount of switches but it also can be dangerous! It may be that the switch attached to Gi2/24 is the only one that is misconfigured..as I say be very careful!

Good luck
