I am about to change all our switches and have pre configured spanning-tree and bpdu protection on all the switches.
I have simplified the drawing by removing a lot of switches, however all switches will connect back to switch 1 with a single crossover cable.
Spanning-tree with Portfast / Admin Edge Port and BPDU protection is configured on all ports with the exception of the uplinks.
I have a question about setting the root switch. I plan to set the bridge priority of switch 1 to have a value of 16384, all other switches are set to default. Would this be the recommended switch to set this on?
Do I also need to set a value of 16384 on the Cisco switch 5 for interface vlan 2?
Kind regards
