VTP/STP/TRUNK

I have a 3750 connected to multiple 2950G's, 3750 is running as VTP Server
V1 with pruning enabled. The 2950G's are trunked to the 3750 and run VTP as
a client. One of my 2950G's recently through this error at me.

%SPANTREE_VLAN_SW-2-MAX_INSTANCE: Platform limit of 64 STP instances
exceeded. No instance created for VLAN153 (port Fa0/1).

I understand the error, STP is enabled on too many interfaces for this
device but this switch only has probably different vlans assigned to it.
After further investigation I found that a sh int <port> trunk on both the
2950 and the 3750 showed different info.

2950G
Port Vlans in spanning tree forwarding state and not pruned
Fa0/1 1-2,20,50,60-61,95-119,121-153,155-158

3750
Port Vlans in spanning tree forwarding state and not pruned
Fa1/0/13 1-2,60,97-99,115,120,122,133,137-138,141-142,144,153

As you can see the 2950 is showing more vlans on the trunked port than the
3750 is showing. Is this normal? Shouldn't they match?

Just to clarify I'm not restricting vlans on the trunked interfaces on the
3750.

I also ran this same test on a different 2950 that's trunked to the 3750 and
the results where backwards on that switch. The 2950 showed fewer vlans on
the trunked port than the 3750 showed..

I verified I have the right ports to the right switches by doing a sh cdp
nei

Thanks in advance.

RE: VTP/STP/TRUNK [In reply to]

Hi,

If you have a lot of VLANs (more than switch can have STP instance for) migrate to MSTP config from PVST+ spanning tree. I had similar problems that VLANs were not pruned even when pruning was enabled and no access ports were on edge switch...

Regards,
Bostjan

Re: VTP/STP/TRUNK [In reply to]

I'm not sure what the limit is for STP interfaces on the 3750, i'm sure it's
much higher than my 2950's. The error i'm seeing (max STP) is on the 2950's
not the 3750 so i'm hitting the limit on them. I beleive i have around 70
vlans or so. I'll have to read up on MSTP, i know nothing about it. Any
good docs?

Shaun

Re: VTP/STP/TRUNK [In reply to]

Hi! Shaun,
Actually there is no limit for STP interfaces but there is a limit on STP instances. In C3750 the limit is 128 & in C2950 the limit is 64. Here u are reaching the limit in 2950, so your most logical approach would be to move towards MSTP.

Good resource for MSTP can be found at - http://www.cisco.com/en/US/partner/products/hw/switches/ps4324/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a00804d784c.html
