Ona Cisco 2960G switch running IOS 12.2  spannign tree is running and if I issue a  "sh spanning tree" command I get output as follows : -
 Spanning tree enabled protocol ieee
 Root ID    Priority    24586
            Address     0016.4704.1e80
            Cost        19
            Port        1 (GigabitEthernet0/1)
            Hello Time   2 sec  Max Age 20 sec  Forward Delay 15 sec

 Bridge ID  Priority    32778  (priority 32768 sys-id-ext 10)
            Address     0019.0692.a100
            Hello Time   2 sec  Max Age 20 sec  Forward Delay 15 sec
            Aging Time 300

BUT, it doesnt tell me what version is running. How do I confirm Rapid-PVST is running.
Happy on how to turn it on by issuing    "spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst "
If it turns out it is not running and, I decide to turn it on what would be the effect if any. Would I experience any down time whenI turn this on?

"Spanning tree enabled protocol ieee" means 802.1d spanning tree.

If you were running 802.1w rapid spanning tree it would say "rapid pvs"

Changing spanning tree modes would result in a re-convergence of the network so you could experience a loss of connectivity. I would wait for a maintenance window or at least a slow period.
