STP Configuration on Huawei
In this lessons, we will focus on STP (Spanning Tree Protocol) Configuration on Huawei Switches. For our Huawei STP Example, we will use the basic topology below.
Let’s start to configure STP on one of these Huawei Switches, Switch 1.
As we discusses in the STP Lesson, there are some different STP Modes. Huawei has three STP Modes. These are:
• STP (Spanning Tree Protocol)
• RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol)
• MSTP (Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol)
Firstly, we will configure the mode of used STP. Here, we will select STP.
Manual Root Bridge Selection
As a best configuration practice, selecting the Route Bridge manually is important. By doing this, you can determine the main STP switch and this can provide you many advantages.
We can select Root Bridge manually in two ways. These ways are:
• “Root Primary” command
• Configure STP Priority value
With “Root Primary” command, we can set a switch as Root Bridge.
