enable stpd ports

enable stpd stpd_name ports [all | port_list]


Enables the STP protocol on one or more ports.

Syntax Description

stpd_name Specifies an STPD on the switch.
all Specifies all ports for a given STPD.
port_list Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.



Usage Guidelines

If you create an STPD with a unique name, the keyword stpd is optional.

If STP is enabled for a port, BPDUs are generated and processed on that port if STP is enabled for the associated STPD.

You must configure one or more STPDs before you can use the enable stpd ports command. To create an STPD, use the create stpd stpd_name {descriptionstpd-description} command. If you have considerable knowledge and experience with STP, you can configure the STPD using the configure stpd commands. However, the default STP parameters are adequate for most networks.


The following command enables slot 2, port 4 on an STPD named Backbone_st:

enable stpd backbone_st ports 2:4
