rapid PVST restrictions

Unanswered Question
Jun 19th, 2009

Does anyone have experience with failing rapid PVST when it used in a large network with + 50 VLAN's.

What type of STP is recommended for that type of network?


I have this problem too.

To be honest 802.1w is pretty stable, and in a switch network with that many vlans and switches, then 802.1w is they way forward.

The only recommendation I would make would be to plan witch switches you want to be the root switch and backup root switch, this will cut down any troubleshooting issues you have later on if you encounter any problems.
