Spanning-tree wireshark question

I am seeing the following lines in Wireshark, but the priority I am seeing is that of the root bridge. Does it matter that I am seeing these wireshark captures on my access switches?

Re: Spanning-tree wireshark question

No, just because STP is running on the access ports;-) Looks perfectly normal.

Hi,

This is because spanning-tree is enabled on access port too.

In hope this helps.

Best regards.

Re: Spanning-tree wireshark question

Would these captures be the result of Portfast/BPDUguard running?

Re: Spanning-tree wireshark question

It's normal. STP is sent via a multicast MAC address so all hosts on the network will see the STP messages assuming it's not disabled for that broadcast domain.
