A5120 and MSTP

I have 8 A5120's I am setting up in a rack.

 

I have a dual port 10gb card in each.

 

I have MSTP enabled now on all of them

 

I have some cat6 connected in front as well for failover, and its working, but via serial is mentions on some that the 10gb port is in a forwarding state, and I am not sure what that means

 

I want to make sure of course that the 10gb links are used unless they are down

 

or is having the cat6 in front a bad idea?

Re: A5120 and MSTP

also a reference on MSTP and the cmd line stuff for it would be nice, can't find that in the main docs

display stp will show you the states of your ports.

Re: A5120 and MSTP

How many instances MSTP supports the HP 5120?

Thank you.
