Rapid-pvst still taking 30secs to converge

Guys,

I'm a little confused here. I've set all my switches (mix of 3750X, 2960S & CG and 3560CG) to rapid-pvst, yet whenever I plug in a new device, it still takes 30 secs for the switch to start allowing communications. My understanding was that rapid-pvst is a variation on rstp, which should take 3 seconds to converge.

The syntax I've used is:

#spanning-tree mode rapid-pvst

Have I missed anything?

Thanks in advance,

Matt

As suggested above, you need to configure portfast. Access port is independant from the rest of Rapid STP features.

Rapid-pvst still taking 30secs to converge

Hello

when you say "plug in a new device" do you mean into an access port? If so - Do you have portfast enabled?

Paul - yes, into an access port, and no, I don't have portfast enabled (that was intentional, but I'm open to suggestions).
