Re: MST configuration

There is a example config which details on changing the spanning tree alogorithm from PVST+ to MST. This will help you.

Re: MST configuration

Hi Dani,

The goal is to try using a single MST region in fact. That's when you can get the full potential of MST. However, the protocol has to handle the case where it's not possible (because of some administrative reasons, misconfiguration or interaction with legacy STP versions for instance). Everything is handled transparently by MST, whether all the bridges are in the same region or not. It's just that you will not be able to do vlan load balancing between regions: MST falls back to using a single STP instance at the boundary between regions.

Regards,

Francois
