configure stpd ports restricted-role disable

configure stpd stpd_name ports restricted-role disable port_list


Disables restricted role on the specified port inside the core network.

Syntax Description

stpd_name Specifies an STPD name on the switch.
port_list Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.



Usage Guidelines

The restricted role is disabled by default. If set, it can cause a lack of spanning tree connectivity. A network administrator enables the restricted role to prevent bridges external to a core region of the network from influencing the spanning tree active topology, possibly because those bridges are not under the full control of the administrator.



Disabling Restricted Role at CIST is inherited by all MSTI.
