I have Dell Power Connect switches in a server farm's access layer and I need to run L2 uplinks to a Cisco top-of-rack switch.
The Power Connect only runs the IEEE flavors of STP and doesnt run per-vlan STP, as it is Cisco proprietary.
What would be the best way to integrate the Dells with regard to STP?
The Dells run STP rSTP and MST.
Correct me if I am wrong, but all of Cisco's implemetation's of STP are done on a per-vlan basis - pvst+.So, I dont think i can run IEEE Rapid STP with Cisco's implementation of RSTP, which is PVRST+. Correct?
I think the only exception would be MST, which would group vlans together in one region/instance.
