TitleHow to configure a port in an STP domain to edge-safeguard mode with bpdu-restrict
Objective
How to configure a port in an STP domain to edge-safeguard mode with bpdu-restrict. 
Environment
  • EXOS All
  • STP
Procedure
The command to enable safe guard and BPDU-restrict.
configure stpd <STPD_name> ports edge-safeguard enable <port_list> bpdu-restrict

edge safe guard only works on edge ports, either auto edge is enabled or you must configure the port for link-type edge.
configure stpd <STPD name> ports link-type edge <port-list> 
 
You can also enable edge safe guard and set link-type to edge in 1 command.
configure stpd <STPD name> ports link-type edge <port-list> edge-safeguard enable bpdu-restrict
Additional notes
Use this command if connecting to a device that is not participating in STP such as phones, servers, pcs, printers.

An edge port configured with edge safeguard immediately enters the forwarding state and transmits
BPDUs. If a loop is detected, STP blocks the port. By default, an edge port without edge safeguard
configured immediately enters the forwarding state but does not transmit BPDUs unless a BPDU is
received by that edge port.

Equivalent to cisco spantree portfast.
