What are the pros and cons to using stp when vtp pruning is in effect?
I had a problem with a trunk using FastEtherChannel. Due to a speed/duplex setting mismatch, it became a layer 2 loop, and caused a broadcast storm. Is this the type of thing that vtp should fix automatically?
STP would have provided protection agianst this scenario, right?
It should protect you against most loop problems (99% I'd say, it fails only under very special circumstancies).
Don't forget: VTP prunning doesn't stop STP, it only stops user data broadcast transmitting when there is no port assigned to the VLAN on the remote switch.
If you want to stop also STP BPDUs on a trunk (you are sure there will never be any port assigned to the VLAN on the remote switch), it's better to disable the VLAN on the trunk, not only allow VTP prunning.
We have 3 identical switches configured by someone else and would like to claim some of the Gigabit ports(G1/G2/G3/G4) for use on servers. When we try to change the wiring and configuration, we run in to connectivity issues. Attached is a des...
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
