Local Director and BPDU's

I am running BPDU guard on my switches. When I plug in my local director I the port is being shut down due to receiving a BPDU packet from that port. Does the Local Director run spanning tree? Does the local director generate BPDU's? If not, why is this happening?

Re: Local Director and BPDU's

The LD is a bridge but does not participate in spanning tree - it will pass BPDUs transparently. Try turning off portfast on ports connected to the LD.

Another option is a to use the command "set spantree portfast bpdu-filter enable". This command was introduced in 6.2.x code.
