I saw this statement in some documents said "Certain configurations of bridges may cause partitions of a VLAN on a link. For such configuration, a frame sent by one bridge to a neighbor on that link might not arrive, if tagged with a VLAN that is parittioned due to bridge configuration."
What does VLAN partition mean? Could anyone share your understandings? thanks a lot!
I have not yet encountered a similar term as VLAN partition. What the statement says, though, appears to me as a bridge misconfiguration where either the VLAN is not created on the bridge at all, hence the bridge will not forward frames in that particular VLAN (a common behavior for VLAN-aware switches), or the VLAN is created but is not configured to be bridged between a particular set of ports, resulting in two or more discontiguous domains.
Apart from this - I do not know
