    Hello Everybody,

    I am not sure what is the best-recommended configuration for the ports of the root-bridge switch should I add to all ports on the core-switch(root-bridge) both commands (mode P2P and no-root-port).

    Below are the commands from the Core and Access Switches:

    Core(root-bridge):

    set protocols rstp bridge-priority 0

    set protocols rstp interface xe-2/2/7 mode point-to-point

    set protocols rstp interface xe-2/2/7 no-root-port

    set protocols rstp interface xe-2/3/2 mode point-to-point

    set protocols rstp interface xe-2/3/2 no-root-port

    Access Switch:

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/0 edge

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/1 edge

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/2 edge

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/3 edge

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/4 edge

    set protocols rstp interface ge-0/0/5 edge

    set protocols rstp interface xe-0/1/2 mode point-to-point (this is uplink to core1)

    set protocols rstp interface xe-0/1/3 mode point-to-point (this is uplink to core2)

    set protocols rstp bpdu-block-on-edge
