Switch stacking on shoretel

Shoretel and switch STP on/off?


Looking at replacing our switches from procurve to Aruba.   Changing the method from daisy chained via ports to a stacked method using same models.  

Im unsure if we need to have STP disabled for shoretel to function?  If this is the case we cannot stack, which i find odd.

Are you saying if you have to use STP, Shortel won't work?  I am not sure how STP would affect Shortel. If you stack the switches they will become one managed switch. STP would see them as one switch also. Regardless you want STP enabled to prevent loops caused by end host devices, especially with VOIP phones having integrated switches.
