Fix Recommendation

Configure Rapid STP to be implemented at the access and distribution layers where VLANs span multiple switches.

Check Contents

In cases where VLANs do not span multiple switches, it is a best practice to not implement STP. Avoiding the use of STP will provide the most deterministic and highly available network topology. If STP is required, then review the HP FlexFabric Switch configuration to verify that Rapid STP has been implemented.

If Rapid STP has not been implemented where STP is required, this is a finding.
