Configures whether the link partner is capable of the loop protect feature.
|stpd_name||Specifies an STPD name on the switch.|
|capable||The link partner supports the loop protect feature.|
|incapable||The link partner does not support the loop protect feature.|
|port_list||Specifies one or more ports or slots and ports.|
By default, this command is set to incapable.
In full mode, when RSTP/MSTP BPDUs are received on a point-to-point link and the port is designated, a loop protect timer is set to three times the hello time. When this timer expires, the port is moved to the blocking state. Limited mode adds the requirement that the flags field in the BPDU indicates a root role.
The following example configures loop protect partner capability to "capable" for port 1:10 in the STP domain r1:
configure stpd r1 ports loop-protect partner capable 1:10
