Configuring Root Protection on an Interface

Configuring Root Protection on an Interface

The root protection function on a switching device protects a root bridge by preserving the role of a designated port.

Context

Due to incorrect configurations or malicious attacks on the network, a root bridge may receive Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) with a higher priority. Consequently, the legitimate root bridge is no longer able to serve as the root bridge, and the network topology is illegitimately changed, triggering spanning tree recalculation. This also may cause the traffic that should be transmitted over high-speed links to be transmitted over low-speed links, leading to network congestion. The root protection function on a switching device is used to protect the root bridge by preserving the role of the designated port.

NOTE:

Root protection is configured on a designated port. It takes effect only when being configured on the port that functions as a designated port on all Multiple Spanning Tree Instances (MSTIs). If root protection is configured on other types of ports, it does not take effect.

Do as follows on a root bridge in a Multiple Spanning Tree (MST) region:

Procedure

  1. Run system-view

    The system view is displayed.

  2. Run interface interface-type interface-number

    The view of the Ethernet interface participating in STP calculation is displayed.

    NOTE:
    The following configurations can be configured both on a Layer 2 interface and a Layer 3 interface.

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

    The port is bound to an MSTP process.

    NOTE:

    This step is performed only when the interface needs to be bound to an MSTP process with a non-zero ID. If the interface belongs to process 0, skip this step.

  4. Run stp root-protection

    Root protection is configured on the switching device.

  5. Run commit

    The configuration is committed.
