Re: Spanig tree Configuration

Simply typing 'span' in the config prompt will enable MSTP.

After that, you should config which switch is the root bridge (should be your core) and another switch to be the backup root. Then you can configure specific paths for fallback, etc.

Get this CLI ref guide, it shows how to configure HP ProVision, HP Comware5 and Cisco switches for lots of different functions, in a side-by-side comparison, so if you know one CLI, you see how to do it in a different CLI:

http://h17007.www1.hp.com/docs/interoperability/Cisco/HP-Networking-and-Cisco-CLI-Reference-Guide_June_10_WW_Eng_ltr.pdf

There is quick info on configuring switches, specifically look at the spanning tree chapter.
