Re: PVST upgrade to Rapid-Spanning Tree

Jackal,

Here is a good document that will point you in the right direction.

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps708/products_configuration_example09186a00807b0670.shtml

Rapid-PVST+ uses the same BPDU format as the 802.1D and it is backward compatible. It is difficult to convert all the switches in the enterprise network at the same time to rapid-PVST+. Because of the backward compatibility, you can convert phase by phase. It is recommended to implement the changes in the scheduled maintenance window because the spanning tree reconfiguration disrupts the traffic flow.

Hi Jackal,

do you have an MPLS cloud over a VLAN infrastructure? Why do you have two control planes?
