STP for LACP Trunks at Core1, Core2 (VRRP enabled) and Edge Switches

I am using Hp5412zl Switches at core1,core2 and Edge. Core1 switch is connected with Core2 through LACP Trunk15 and provide VRRP feature to the network. Edge switch has redundant LACP Trunks to core1 and core2 through Trunk5 and Trunk25 respectively.

As i made the trunks, it automaticlly assinged Priority4 for all the Trunks at COre and Edge switches. Is this priority4 is correct?? or we have to make priority changes according to over wish.....

Lets say i want all the traffic from Edge has to flow via core1(trunk 5) and If core1 fails let it go via core2(trunk 25).

Communication between Core1 to Core2 has to be through Trunk15.

Pls suggest......see the configuration of core1,core2 and edge.

Re: STP for LACP Trunks at Core1, Core2 (VRRP enabled) and Edge Switches

Hi

When you create a trunk, by default it comes to priority 4.

And for your scenario i have a comment and a Suggestion:

Comment:- Without changing the Priority of any trunk, if you want all the traffic to come to Core1, then Core1 should be the ROOT of your spanning tree.

And i think in the current situation, Core1 is the Root and Core2 is backup because you assigned priority 1 to Core1, and priority 6 to Core2.

(I would prefer to use Priority0 for Core1, and Priority1 for Core2)

Suggestion:- For more efficiency and load balancing in your network you can use the MSTP, and load balance all the traffic on both Trunks connecting from the Edge to both Cores based on the Vlans.

So you don't have one Active Trunk and the other is redundant, with MSTP both will be Active.

Good Luck !!!
