Hi,

I've core cisco switch with custom priority 4096, because I always want to be it root bridge, and several downstream huawei devices which are non root bridges.

I'm running MSTP on all switches.

NX-OS-1# show spanning-tree brief
MST0000
Spanning tree enabled protocol mstp
Root ID Priority 4096
...
Interface Role Sts Cost Prio.Nbr Type
---------------- ---- --- --------- -------- --------------------------------
...
Eth1/20 Desg FWD 2000 128.130 P2p Bound(PVST)

Downstream Huawei shows Port STP Mode :STP on link facing to Eth1/20

-------[CIST Global Info][Mode MSTP]-------

----[Port3(XGigabitEthernet0/0/1)][FORWARDING]----
Port Protocol :Enabled
Port Role :Root Port
Port Priority :128
Port Cost(Dot1T ) :Config=auto / Active=2000
Designated Bridge/Port :4096.002a-6a60-d101 / 128.130
Port Edged :Config=default / Active=disabled
Point-to-point :Config=auto / Active=true
Transit Limit :6 packets/s
Protection Type :Loop
Port STP Mode :STP


Another non Huawei facing port on cisco device are simple P2p.

Huawei to Huawei port types are MSTP.

How to configure Huawei STP correctly to set port facing cisco to MSTP.

@Dzyan hello,
STP protocol programing by Huawei and Cisco are different. Huawei programs the STP protocol based on the standard IEEE protocol, while Cisco made some changes.
Briefly, the destination MAC address of the STP packets are different for Huawei and Cisco, so the STP negotiation may have a minor problem.

Please try confiugring stp config-digest-snoop on the connection interface of the Huawei and Cisco.

Hi, Thanks for information.
May I ask some more.
I have three connections from huawei to cisco root and only two has incorrect port type.
I found that my domains has the same region digest:
<Huawei>display stp region-configuration digest

from you output, the region name seems to be different on the two terminals.
