Rapid Spanning tree with single instance?

I'm trying to setup rapid spanning tree between a pair of 6500's and an HP Procurve 4100. The HP switch only uses one instance of S/T across all vlans, whereas it looks like the Cat by default uses 1 instance per vlan. Is there a way to set the Cat to use one instance across all vlans? Is there any other way to make this work?

Thanks,

-Scott.

Re: Rapid Spanning tree with single instance?

Does your HP switch support IEEE MST? 6500 in newer software versions, supports MST

Re: Rapid Spanning tree with single instance?

According to HP support, the ProCurve switches only support single instance spanning tree. I have not seen any config options that would lead me to think otherwise.
