2524/2512 Loop-protect


ive been rolling out the loop-protect feature across a site with a range of HP switches.

Its worked for all bar the 25xx series, i was wondering if this feature is avaliable on these switches?

I have upgraded the switches to F.05.72 which is the most recent version but still have no luck

The commands used are

switch config: loop-protect eth (ports)
switch config: loop-protect disable-timer 120

They're just showing their age, I think - they've only got 2MB of flash. I guess it's getting fairly hard to shoehorn anything else in there.

Product is too old to support this feature.
Not enough memory or flash to support this.

Re: 2524/2512 Loop-protect

thanks for the replies that solves that.

Is there any alternative option for the older switches?

Re: 2524/2512 Loop-protect

They support RSTP (Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol). Which is the standards based equivalent to loop protect. IIRC you can emulate loop protect behavior using spanning-tree bpdu protection.
