Re: setting the stp priority on the new 2960s

Hi,

You can use the following command to set the STP priority.

spanning-tree vlan vlan-id priority priority

For priority, the range is 0 to 61440 in increments of 4096; the default is 32768. The lower the number, the more likely the switch will be chosen as the root switch.

The priority value lets you to control which switch can become the root bridge for a given vlan. For the switch to become the root bridge for a given vlan, the priority value on the switch should be lower than the priority values of any other bridge in the network for that vlan.

The IEEE default value for the priority value is 32768

Check out the following URL for more details on this.
