Re: self-looping status in spanning tree

Hi,

LBK state represents Loop-Back state. I would like to know , is it a uplink port or connected to any workstation. also in the logs, are there any messages for loopback state ?

If you have connected balun cable to this port then this can be in LBK mode, balun cable is a loopback cable.

kindly update.

Re: self-looping status in spanning tree

hi,

thanks. we just tested the broadcast-storm in 2950 and 3500XL/2900XL.

2950 blocked the traffic with LBK. but 3500/2900XL hang. So there was different processing for LBK between 2950 and 2900/3500.

best regards.

Hello,

A self-looping port is usually a port coupled to another port at the same bridge/switch. Can you check if your switch is physically configred like this ?

Regards,

Georg
