RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

Hello,

my network is looking like this:

Switch 1 RSTP
Port 24 + Prio 112 => Router 1 / Root Port
Port 23 + Prio 96 => Switch 2
Port 2 + Prio 128 => Rack 2 HP 2610
Port 1 + Prio 128 => Rack 1 HP 2610

Switch 2 RSTP
Port 24 + Prio 112 => Router 2
Port 23 + Prio 96 => Switch 1 / Root Port
Port 2 + Prio 144 => Rack 2 HP 2610
Port 1 + Prio 144 => Rack 1 HP 2610

Now when i pull the cable to port 2 switch 2. Everything is OK no downtime. But when i put it in again i have a network downtime of 5 seconds and a downtime of Rack 2 for about 20 seconds.

Is this correct? Any idea why this happens`?

Thanks for your answer.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

Could you attach the output of "show span" for Switch 1 and Switch2 ?

The two rack switches (2610s) they have spanning tree disabled?

> The two rack switches (2610s) they have

No they have spanning tree enabled - cause when i disable it both ports on Switch 1 + 2 are in forward state. It seems, that the 2610 does not transmit bpdu packets when stp is disabled - newest firmware is installed.

Information regarding the switch:
2610-24
Version: R.11.04, ROM R.10.06

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

You have bpdu-protection on switch 2, port 2. I would start by disabling that.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

Oh sorry - the relevant ports in my example and in show span do not match. In the show span it is Port 3+4 on both.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

If it supports it, what does show span detail say? Maybe as an attachement, it's fairly long.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

Thanks for your help.

Here are the absolutely correct port numbers:
Switch 1:
Port 4: Rack 2
Port 8: Rack 1

Switch 2:
Port 1: Rack 1
Port 3: Rack 2

and attached the .txt file.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

If I'm reading ths right: it appears that Router 1 is the root bridge in your spanning tree.

Switch 1, port 24 has 0 RSTP BPDUs received. That implies Router 1 is running plain old STP.

Mhm the router is a foundry bigiron.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

Heading out of my depth here but as far as I can tell from the Foundry web site:

spanning tree rstp doesn't enable rstp but an early draft(3) of it.

spanning-tree 802-1w is the real deal.

You might like to confirm with someone that actually understands those beasts though.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

you're abolutely correct - who can imagine that rtsp command is not rtsp. I've now configured it to 802-1w and will try it again on monday.

Thank you so much.

Re: RSTP is not working as expected HP2824

It's working fine now. Only when i pull the main link to one of the racks the backuplink goes into learning state and it takes 5s to be online again. But all other pulls and put ins :-) are working fine.

I think the 5s outage is normal isn't it?
