I'm facing an issue most probably with the spanning-tree loops causing broadcast storm.
Please see the attached picture for more details.
If I connect switch Stratix5700#1 (Rockwell version of Cisco IE2000) with only one trunk, there is ot issue. But if I connect both trunks the broadcast storm appears (only for VLANs 301,302 and 334). Unfortuntely this stupid switch with the lite version of IOS does not support port-channel neither flex links. So the spanning-tree is the only one option how to have redundant trunks. The problem is that the network is operating 24/7 so I cannot do deep investigation as the issue has an impact to entire network. My plan is to wait for the next maintenance window to enable BPDU skew detection to debug STP events.
The network is in the middle of tech refrest (thats the reason why you see so many distribution blocks). I know about old IOS version and obsolete hardware, but It's a long story
Any idea about the root cause of this issue would be appreciated.
Friend If the SW not support the PortChannel then the best solution here is using PVST, this make each link block all VLAN and allow only one VLAN. in this way you can use all link but make each link not forward traffic for all VLAN but only for specific VLAN.
Hello I would say the STP mode you are running is fine no need to change this. Make sure the vlan STP priorities for this switch is less preferred than its upstream switch Try: Changing the physical ports/sfps, cabling Changing the from UDLD aggressive to normal? Disable storm control ( temporary)
