hi, i'm trying to use packet tracer to see how STP works.
i've created a hierchical swiched network topology with redundancy.
i've created some VLANS, trunks, on the network with a basic telnet configuration.
all the basic configuration for the vlans seems to work.
i have also set the priority value for each ROOT BRIDGE for stp for every vlans that i have in the topology. i would like to have for each vlan a different
root bridge. i don't want the same root bridge for every instance of stp.
in packet tracer i've noticed that if i don't set the stp priority values and i leave all the vlans with the same priority, i have the same root bridge for
all the vlans. in this case i see the red and green dots for the block and the forward states.
if i set a differente ROOT BRIDGE for each vlan, packet tracer shows me all green dots, but all seems to work.
if i use the "show spanning tree" command i can see the ports in the blocking states for each vlan.
is it normal ?
i mean if i want a different root bridge for each vlan is it normal that i see in packet tracer all green dots ?
sorry for my english, i'm italian
i send the file can someone tell me if there's some errors ?
