I am setting up more ports at alternate location as a few floors in my building are unusable due to some environmental issues. Currently this network is running multiple instance spanning tree. So that I do not have the usual 50 second STP delay is there any thing that i can do on the older 3548 switches to acheive some level of compatibility? Unfortunately I cannot take my other switches to the other location as equipment on various floors must stay up and running. All I have left are the 3548 XLs
My config at the other location is as follows:
spanning-tree mst configuration
instance 1 vlan 1, 5, 10-12, 15, 100, 253
Would I need to something with rapid spanning tree on these since they do not support MSTP?
