EXOS STP Domain

Make sure VLAN / ports are assoiciated with a STP domain so the ports can particiapate in STP. Check with show vlan (T flag means VLAN is member of a STP domain) or show stpd (check VLAN bindings).

Created VLAN 11 and moved port 5 to it and purposely tried to set p-t-p link knowing VLAN not part of STP domain…

* EXOS-VM.28 # create vlan 11
* EXOS-VM.29 # configure vlan 11 add ports 5
VLAN 11 VLAN_0011:  Port 5 untagged has been auto-moved from VLAN “Default” to “VLAN_0011”.

* EXOS-VM.30 # show stpd s0 p 5-8
Port     Mode   State      Cost  Flags     Priority Port ID Designated Bridge
Port 5 not in STP domain s0

* EXOS-VM.31 # configure stpd s0 ports link-type point-to-point 5
Error: Port 5 is not a member of STP domain s0
Error: Command aborted due to input errors, no changes made
* EXOS-VM.32 #

After binding VLAN 11 I can set port 5 as link-type point-to-point…

* EXOS-VM.33 # enable stpd s0 auto-bind vlan 11
* EXOS-VM.34 # configure stpd s0 ports link-type point-to-point 5

* EXOS-VM.35 # show stpd s0 port 5
