Hi Kaustav,

Thats right now. The interface is a stacked interface and on 3750 in STP switch stack appears as a single spanning-tree node to the rest of the network, and all stack members use the same bridge ID for a given spanning tree. The bridge ID is derived from the MAC address of the stack master.

Can you post a 'show ip interface brief'?

Hi Kaustav,

When you have switches in stack then you see an interface as stack1 in your spanning tree status. Like 3750 can be connected with another 3750 in stack so the interafce will be referred as stack.

But AFAIK there is no stack kind of stuff on 4500 so do you have switches like 3750 in stack connected to 4500 switch?

3750 stacks are connected to the network but no directly with the 4506 switch
