migration from rapid-pvst to mst

Hi, we need to migrate our switching network (2 6513 and 8 4507 all running ios, we are using more than 200 vlan) from rapid-pvst to mst (we are going to interconnect some non-cisco switch). Is there any suggestion about this migration? Thank you.

Re: migration from rapid-pvst to mst

Since you're having more than 200 vlan's, this suggestion of migrating from PerVlan RSTP(PVRSTP) to Multiple Spanning Tree (MST) is a good one. Before that ensure whether your cisco ios version supports MST feature. I think your catalyst switches all will support MST. It has2 main advantages.

1.Load Balancing,

2.Less cpu burden.

The following document explains in detail about MST:
