Hi Michael,


To enable Rapid STP, all you have to do is use the spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst in global configuration mode.

Make sure you put this command on all your switches, otherwise the switch without this command will use 802.1D.


HTH,

Have a look at this document, it is for the 6500 but it is relevant to the 3560 -

come back if you have further questions.
