We have a core that runs Cisco switches but the access-layer switches use Linksys. Although the high-end Linksys switches. Currently, Cisco is running PVST and the Linksys runs STP. We would like to switch it to RSTP. The Linksys switches support RSTP but Cisco only supports Rapid-PVST+. How is this going to work?
I am thinking that the STP for the VLAN 1 will be the one used by the Linksys switches. If coreA and coreB is connected by a trunk then the Linksys is connected to both coreA and B, if coreA is the RB for VLAN1, then the connection of Linksys to coreA will be the RP for all VLANs since it doesn't run Rapid-PVST. Correct me if I'm wrong.
Now, I'm thinking that my other option is MST since the Linksys switch supports MST. This way, I can support RSTP. Is this a good solution?
