Re: Spanning Problem with Unknown State

Hi there,

It looks like the port has put itself in "Loop Inconsistent" state. Are you running the Spanning Tree Loop Guard config on the port?

If so, and you are sure that the interface is functioning as it should be (i.e in full working order) I have heard that disabling and re-enabling Loop Guard on the port can sometimes clear errors...

Re: Spanning Tree Problem with Unknown State

Hi Jonathan,

Thanks for your reply.

The port configuration just a normal trunk, no any Loop guard feature enable. But SW001 and SW004 have disabled STP gloablly.

SW001and SW004 only allowed vlan 350 - 359 but SW002 and SW003 only allowed vlan 350 - 360

swithport mode trunk

swithport allowed vlan 350-360

SW001 --> SW002 ---- SW003 <-- SW004
