Migrating from STP to EAPS

This section explains how to migrate or reconfigure an existing STP network to an EAPS network.

Note

Note

Actual implementation steps on a production network may differ based on the physical topology, switch models, and software versions deployed.

The sample STP network is a simple two-switch topology connected with two Gigabit Ethernet trunk links, which form a broadcast loop. Both Extreme Networks switches are configured for 802.1D mode STP running on a single data VLAN named Data. The sample STP network for migration to EAPS is shown in the following figure.
