Opened: May 26, 2020

Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

The BIG-IP system does not to Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) Bridge Protocol Data Units (BPDUs) with only the proposal flag ON (i.e., without the agreement flag ON).

Impact

Network convergence takes more time than expected.

Conditions

-- Neighbor Switch sends RSTP BPDU with only proposal flag ON. -- The agreement flag is not ON.

Workaround

None.

Fix Information

None
