Configuring Loop Protection on an Interface

Configuring Loop Protection on an Interface

Context

To maintain the root port status and status of blocked ports on a network running MSTP, a switching device receives BPDUs from an upstream switching device. If the switching device cannot receive these BPDUs because of link congestion or unidirectional-link failure, the switching device re-selects a root port. The original root port becomes a designated port and the original blocked ports change to the Forwarding state. This may cause network loops. To mitigate this issue, configure loop protection.

If the root port or alternate port does not receive BPDUs from the upstream device for a long period, the switch enabled with loop protection sends a notification to the NMS. If the root port is used, the root port enters the Discarding state and becomes the designated port. If the alternate port is used, the alternate port remains blocked and becomes the designated port. In this case, loops will not occur. After the link congestion subsides or unidirectional link failures are rectified, the port receives BPDUs for negotiation and restores its original role and status.

NOTE:
An alternate port is a backup port for a root port. If a switching device has an alternate port, configure loop protection on both the root port and the alternate port.

Perform the following steps on the root port and alternate port on a switching device in an MST region.

Procedure

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The Ethernet interface view is displayed.

  3. (Optional) Run stp binding process process-id

    The port is bound to an MSTP process.

    NOTE:

    Skip this step if the interface belongs to process 0.

  4. Run stp loop-protection

    Loop protection for the root port is configured on the switching device.

    By default, loop protection is disabled.

    Root protection and loop protection cannot be configured together.

  5. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
