Discussion :: Spanning Tree Protocol - Spanning Tree Protocol (Q.No.10)


You want to run the new 802.1w on your switches. Which of the following would enable this protocol?

[A]. Switch(config)# spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst
[B]. Switch# spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst
[C]. Switch(config)# spanning-tree mode 802.1w
[D]. Switch# spanning-tree mode 802.1w

Answer: Option A


802.1w is the also called Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol. It is not enabled by default on Cisco switches, but it is a better STP to run since it has all the fixes that the Cisco extensions provide with 802.1d.
