if I have 2 switches with only one link between them and no redundancy then add a new switch which has a lower BID than the other 2 switches over a single link do all my ports on all my switches transition into the listening then learning stage?
What would happen if the new switch has a higher BID?
This should be in another forum, I'll close this and move it.
Spanning tree would hold a root bridge election - the switch with the higest ID will win.
if you have configured the switch ports as normal layer 2 - then they will go thru the port spanningtree process.... If you have configured them for portfast - they wont. if you have configured them as a trunk they will not.
How are you actually planning to cable the new switch?
