mstpctl-portadminedge yes


Userlevel 1
I saw in the documentation that you can enable portfast globally on ports via the bridge by using the 'mstpctl-portadminedge yes' command. However, it only seems to work when I enable it individually under each switchport.

Hi B,

I'm new to this, so I may be wrong, but it looks like for a traditional bridge you still need to set each port equal to yes under the bridge.

mstpctl-portadminedge swp1=yes swp2=yes

What documentation are you referring to? I'm looking at the 3.1.1 guide as well as this https://support.cumulusnetworks.com/hc/en-us/articles/206908397-Cumulus-Linux-vs-Cisco-IOS-Spanning-...

Hey Ryan,
I think I was reading it wrong. Since I'm using a vlan-aware bridge, the only way to enable it would be directly under each swp interface configuration.
Thanks for pointing that out!

Hey Pete,
I think the writing is just fine after reading it thoroughly. I think it was more of wishful thinking on my part!

Port level configuration is probably the most scalable for now. We're exploring a few options here though... 1 is to enable bpduguard and portadminedge whenever a port is set to "bridge-access YYY".

Hey Eric,
That would be an excellent addition!
Thanks.
