Hi fabb,

Normally this would not matter as the router does not take part in STP. 

I usually leave STP enabled on all ports in case somebody plugs there own layer 2 device into the switch which could cause a loop?

Hi Flinstone,

Thanks for your reply, it was my first idea but i prefer to be sure, in this switch, for this company, there are many devices plugged like netapp , proxmox... and for myself i must leave spanning tree but once again for the netapp i'm not very sure as there is a part switching on it and i have not the hands on it. I have disabled the fast learning.... Thanks again
