disable stpd ports

Disables STP on one or more ports for a given STPD.

disable stpd stpd_name ports [all | port_list]

Syntax Description

stpd_name Specifies an STPD name 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 the STPD with a unique name, the keyword stpd is optional.

Disabling STP on one or more ports puts those ports in the forwarding state; all BPDUs received on those ports are disregarded and dropped.

Use the all keyword to specify that all ports of a given STPD are disabled.

Use the port_list parameter to specify a list of ports of a given STPD are disabled.

If you do not use the default STPD, you must create one or more STPDs and configure and enable the STPD before you can use the disable stpd ports command.


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

disable stpd backbone_st ports 2:4
