Enabling Uplinkfast on Production Network

I would like to enable uplinkfast on my distribution level switches. They currenlty have backbonefast enabled. Can this be done on a production network or will a scheduled outage need to occur?

Generally on any switch that has blocked ports. So yes, if your distribution switches have blocked ports, enable on them as well.

Re: Enabling Uplinkfast on Production Network

UplinkFast provides fast STP convergence after a direct link failure in the network access-layer. It operates without modifying the STP protocol, and its purpose is to speed up convergence time in a specific circumstance less then 3 sec, rather than the typical 30s delay (for a direct link failure). This feature should be enabled for switches with blocked ports, typically at the access-layer. It can be added without disruption to a production network.

Hope it helps.

Does this not need to be enabled on the distribution switches as well?
