RPVST Issue on the Firmware YA.16.02.0012
There is an issue with switch software YA 16.02.0012 for RPVST
Our issues is as follows:
When I unplug the fiber between the root - 2530 and SW1, we lose connection to Alumina and Read. The root switch does not show any activity in the logs, but the network switch at SW2 tells itself to become the root, at which point we lose connection.
We have swapped out the Aruba root switch and swapped in our old network switch that is setup as rapid spanning tree. We recreate these events and do not lose any connection to SW2.
Therefore, it seems there is a spanning tree configuration issue with this Aruba root switch. We are trying to force rapid spanning tree but it doesn’t seem to be done correctly.
Tried the lab setup and found that everything is working fine correctly however the RPVST is not happening.
Upgraded the switch software to 16.02.0022 M.
Once the switch was upgraded to the latest the issue resolved.
