Hi,
Just wondering, in the past with vmware and citrix xenserver
I have always been disabled spanning tree at the edge port, which connects to the hosts
So with Cisco, spanning-tree port fast
Is this the same case for hyper-v 2012 R2? I'm using switch independent dynamic load balancing policy which comes with R2
Is there best practice white papers?

I use spanning-tree portfast for my Hyper-V ports, including network teams.

Everything I have seen says to set to portfast. If STP is on you may try to send traffic before STP unlocks the port, which is bad.

We only use spanning-tree for client workstations connecting to the network. Everything is static and defined so spanning-tree is not required as no network loops will be created.
