maximum MST instances

Hi

We have a mix of Cisco 6500s and 4500s all running MST although the 4500 are running pre-standards MST. Looking at the link http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SXF/native/configuration/guide/mst.html the maximim MST instances per region is 65 is this the case for standards and pre standards based MST on the above platforms also does the 4500/6500 have hardware/platform specific limitations on the number of MST instances.

Kind Regards

Kev

Re: maximum MST instances

done some more digging and found the below:

MST instances on 6500 12.2SX

Max is 65 instances per region

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst6500/ios/12.2SX/configuration/guide/spantree.html

this document states there are some IOS releases only supporting 16 instances

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_configuration_example09186a00807b075f.shtml

The below link states that 4500 on train 12.1(19)EW only supports 15 0-15 MST instances.
