Recommended Practice for Spanning Tree Configurations

Since the SP network management port is not designed to behave like a switch port, the SP network management port does not support switch port features like spanning-tree portfast.

When configuring Spanning Tree parameters, consider these recommendations:

  • The port used to connect the SP network management port to the adjacent network switch should always treat the SP network management port as a host port.

  • The Spanning Tree option on the port connecting to the adjacent network switch should either be disabled entirely or at a minimum, be configured with the following parameters:

Spanning Tree Parameter
Recommended Setting
portfast
Enable this interface to immediately move to a forwarding state.
bpdufilter
Do not send or receive BPDUs on this interface.
bpduguard
Do not accept BPDUs on this interface.
cdp
Do not enable the discovery protocol on this interface.
