Is "RAPID-PVST+" and "rapid-pvst" one and the same ?

Hello Community !

 

I know this will sound stupid but I have to ask...!

 

We have a (CatOS) Cat.6509 connected to a Nexus 5672.

The c6509 reports :

> (enable) sh spantree summ
Spanning tree mode: RAPID-PVST+

while the Nexus reports :

# sh span sum
Switch is in rapid-pvst mode

 

Was I wrong to assume these two are the same with different syntax ?

We're troubleshooting weird, "phantom" like behavior (i.e. working / non-working, and vice versa) and I'm trying to verify everything...

I do not have any indication that this is actually an STP issue - just trying to make sure.

 

Thanx in advance.

Costas

Hi,

Similar but not exactly the same

Have a look at this post:

HTH

Thanx for the effort !
Just so happened that I had come across that article and it does not answer my question.
I'm trying to find-out if there is an actual difference between the two since they both report the same mode but one of them also has a "+" sign at the end.

Thanx for replying BB !
According to this doc - and to what I knew and suspected - the Nexus does support "Rapid PVST+" it just does NOT display the "+" as output of the corresponding show command.
That was my doubt, not the syntax.
Do you agree or you wanted to make another point ?
