An MST Region defines a boundary within which a single instance of STP operates. MST employs the use of Regions because not all switches in the network might run or support MST; therefore, different kinds of STPs divide the network into STP regions.
A collection of interconnected switches that have the same MST configuration comprises an MST Region. MST configuration must be the same on all switches in the same MST region; this includes the following three user-configured parameters:
- The MST Region Name (up to 32 bytes)
- Configuration Revision Number (0 to 65,535) The content below this message is for members only.
