GbE2c and RSTP

I have a HP Procurve infrastructure and I use RSTP with excellent performance.
As said in the previous thread, now I'm deploying a blade with GbE2c switches and I'd like to have "pure" RSTP.
I noticed variuos settings about STP/MSTP/RSTP: what are the right enable/disable commands to have only Procurve-compatible RSTP?

Thanks again

Re: GbE2c and RSTP

2 guidelines

- RSTP parameters are configured in Spanning Tree Group 1.

- When RSTP is turned on, all VLANs from STP Groups other than STP Group 1 are moved to STP Group 1. The
other STP Groups (2-128) are turned off.


>> /cfg/l2/mrst (Select Multiple Spanning Tree menu)

>> Multiple Spanning Tree# mode rstp (Set mode to Rapid Spanning Tree)

>> Multiple Spanning Tree# on (Turn Rapid Spanning Tree on)

Then apply and save.
