Re: router and switches questions

Hello Just,

1)

not sure I've understood question

int type x/y

shut

or no shut

2) you will have privilege level 15 so yes

3) not clear to me

However, to prevent bridging loops:

never use spanning tree bpdu filter

use spanning-tree bpduguard enable on portfast access ports

you can take advantage of spanning-tree loop guard on uplinks (configured on all devices both sides)

When a bridging loop happens you realize it by:

cpu going to 100% on core switches, limited to no access on switches.

Hope to help

Giuseppe
