STP port type network - no bridge assurance!
I came across something I though t rather odd the other day. A config on a nexus 7000 has 'no spanning-tree bridge assurance' configured, but at the same time, on the 802.1q trunks, I saw 'spanning-tree port type network'.
Now it is my understanding that these two go hand in hand? i.e. spanning-tree port type network 'NEEDS' STP bridge assurance to be on. Clearly this is not the case, so I am just wondering what the outcome of this will be. Do the ports fall back to standard STP (effectively port type normal) or could this potentially be a bigger problem if a looped l2 environment were to come into existence?
Unfortunately I didn't have time to re-configure.....
