Re: 5308xl and STP

If STP disabled,the switch (5308xl) does not participate in creating the STP-tree but does not prevent to propagating BPDUs for other switches through their ports(as for usuall frame Layer 2).I want to do so:the port must filter and drop BPDUs on separate port. We us such configuration in SSR-2000(Enterasys):
stp filter-bpdu et.2.3
What can I do whith 5372xl ?
We need to do local STP-trees for the separate big nets where evry net have own "root switch" and connect to the 5372xl.

Why not use PVSPT (Per VLAN Spanning Tree)?

With PVSPT you can use different STP trees for different VLANs, solving your problem.
