Long time no see, guys. These days I’m too busy to learn HCIE, however, I decide to learn one chapter now. The configuration file of eNSP is attached as 1.1.7 Example for configuring basic stp functions.

1.1.7 Example for Configuring Basic STP Functions-1248033-1

[SwitchC-Ethernet0/0/4]stp cost 200000

We should use command as above to specify path cost of Ethernet 0/0/4 of Switch C.

[SwitchC-Ethernet0/0/2]stp disable, we use this to disable STP on Ethernet 0/0/2 of Switch C, which is connected with PC.

Now we can see the output of Switch C:

[SwitchC]display stp brief

 MSTID  Port                        Role  STP State     Protection

   0    Ethernet0/0/1               ROOT  FORWARDING      NONE

   0    Ethernet0/0/3               DESI  FORWARDING      NONE

 0    Ethernet0/0/4               ALTE  DISCARDING      NONE

  Because the cost of Ethernet 0/0/4 is big, then it’s selected to be ALTE port to be blocked to avoid loop problem. Ethernet 0/0/2’s STP is disable, that’s why we can’t see it here.

    Why Ethernet 0/0/1 is selected as root port?

1.1.7 Example for Configuring Basic STP Functions-1248033-2

    Because Ethernet 0/0/1’s port ID is 0x8002, which is smaller than Ethernet 0/0/3’s 0x8003. The smaller the higher priority.

There is also MSTP, which is complicated. Just remember that, you can use multiple MSIs to give flow to different vlans.

For example, MSI1 for vlan 5 to 10, MSI2 for vlan 11 to 20, MSI0 is for default. Port priority and cost to decide while port to be blocked.
