pvst spanning tree
Posted on 2013-10-26
Suppose I have (3) cisco 3560 switches brand new taken out of the box. I power them on and connect them to each other via trunk links. I dont do anything to the Priority so they will use their MAC's to calculate the bridge IDs. they will use PVST by default. Let's say switch 2 has the lowest MAC address. If I have 10 VLANS, can I assume bridge 2 will be the root bridge for all the VLANS?
Question #2: Does a switch need to have the "int vlan" to qualify to be a candidate for root bridge?
Please, not links explaining STP. I know what it's about and just want to clear up some dumb questions.
