Pro 2524 edge ports

on my 2524's when I look at the span config it shows all the ports are edge ports including the stk ports. Should the stk ports be edge ports?

Thanks, B.

Re: Pro 2524 edge ports

As soon as an edge port receives a BPDU, it will change the operational status to no-edge - so usually it's not much of an issue leaving it at the defaults but you may see periods of brief flooding if one of these links were to go online/offline.

Since you have noticed though, the best practice is to disable the edge-port status for your switch-to-switch links.

Thanks Matt,

I forgot about BPDU, I may just keep an eye on it and see when it changes on its own.

Thanks again for your timely reply.
