Usage Guidelines

To enable BPDU Guard by default, you must do the following:

•Configure the interface as spanning tree edge ports by entering the spanning-tree port type edge or the spanning-tree port type edge default command.

•Enable BPDU Guard.

Use this command to enable BPDU Guard globally on all spanning tree edge ports. BPDU Guard disables a port if it receives a BPDU.

Global BPDU Guard is applied only on spanning tree edge ports.

You can also enable BPDU Guard per interface; see the spanning-tree bpduguard command for more information.


Note We recommend that you enable BPDU Guard on all spanning tree edge ports.
