delete stpd

delete stpd stpd_name


Removes a user-defined STPD from the switch.

Syntax Description

stpd_name Specifies a user-defined STPD name on the switch.



Usage Guidelines

If your STPD has the same name as another component, for example a VLAN, we recommend that you specify the identifying keyword as well as the name. If you do not specify the stpd keyword, an error message similar to the following is displayed:

%% Ambiguous command: "delete Test"

In this example, to delete the STPD Test, enter delete stpd Test.

If you created an STPD with a name unique only to that STPD, the keyword stpd is optional.

The default STPD, s0, cannot be deleted.

In an MSTP environment, you cannot delete or disable a CIST if any of the MSTIs are active in the system.


The following example deletes an STPD named "purple_st":

delete stpd purple_st
