Basic question on Port channel/STP.
Core Switch A : STP root Core SW B : STP Secondary. : Core A&B port channeled (PO#1)
Access SW1(STP priority set to Max) : connected to Core SW A via PO# 10 (ports gig 0/19 & 20)
SW1 also connects to Core SW B via PO#20 (porta gig 0/23 & 24) for redundancy.
So in this scenario, will the Core SW B ports that connected to SW1 (via PO#20) will be blocked to avoid the loop or not?
Thanks in advance
Port channel connected to core sw B will be in blocked state at access layer switch end and port at core sw B will be DP !!
bundle 20 will be blocked but on the access layer switch side: its STP priority is worse then that of CoreB, CoreB will be elected designated port on the segment, as a result of this access layer switch should be in blocking state.
Be aware that if the bundle is a L2 trunk and you have developed different STP priorities for different vlans on core A and core B you will be able to use both bundle 10 and bundle 20 for different sub sets of vlans. (all this if STP mode is per vlan STP PVST+ that is the default)
Hope to help
