In Cisco Switches, at least in previous versions of STP, there are many features such as:
Uplinkfast
Backbonefast
Rootguard
Loopguard
Bpduguard
Bpdufilter

I wonder if the aforementioned features are still needed to be manually configured in the newer versions of STP. If so then in Which scenarios they need to be manually configured ?

Thank you

If you use STP and not something else (RSTP or MSTP) rules are still the same. You need to configure it manually. Some of the options are available in RSTP and MSTP.

Hi there,

The additional features would have to be configured manually in case of STP.
I would recommend you to switch over to rapid pvst.
The RSTP has a mechanism that incorporates the functionality of Uplink fast and backbone fast and the advantages of it could be directly availed.
