Release Information

Statement introduced in JUNOS Release 9.0 for EX Series switches.

Description

When you explicitly configure STP, the EX Series switches use the IEEE 802.1D 2004 specification, force version 0. This configuration runs a version of RSTP that is compatible with the classic, basic STP (defined in the IEEE 802.1D 1998 specification).

The remaining statements are explained separately.

Default

STP is disabled; by default, RSTP is enabled on all Ethernet switching ports.
