Bridge priorities for STP

Hi,

I thought priority for building Bridge ID within STP defaults to 32,768.

I have created 4 vlans, and the default priority for vlan 2 and 3 for example is: 32770 and 32771. Why is not the default one? The switch is with its default config.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Bridge priorities for STP

Hi Jorge

This is probably because you have spanning-tree system extend-id turned on.

Taken from one of our switches :-

HQ-FTZ-F00-SW1#sh spanning-tree vlan 30

VLAN0030

Spanning tree enabled protocol ieee

Root ID Priority 32798

Address 000a.b8b3.a980

Cost 19

Port 24 (FastEthernet0/24)

Hello Time 2 sec Max Age 20 sec Forward Delay 15 sec

Bridge ID Priority 32798 (priority 32768 sys-id-ext 30)

Address 000e.84e1.f680

Hello Time 2 sec Max Age 20 sec Forward Delay 15 sec

Aging Time 300

Interface Role Sts Cost Prio.Nbr Type

---------------- ---- --- --------- -------- --------------------------------

Fa0/16 Desg FWD 19 128.16 Edge P2p

Fa0/17 Desg FWD 19 128.17 Edge P2p

Fa0/24 Root FWD 19 128.24 P2p

This switch has "spanning-tree system extend-id" turned on. This output is for vlan 30 and the priority is

32768 + 30 = 32798.

So in your case

32768 + 2 = 32770

32768 + 3 = 32771
