  • All EXOS platforms
  • MSTP
This issue is probably triggered by xos0069318 - "If the port is part of both tagged and untagged VLANs participating in MSTP then the BPDU packets are not processed by EXOS"
Upgrade to EXOS version where mentioned CR is not present.
How do I search release notes for known issues?
What is the recommended software version for my platform?

As a workaround you can configure port as a tagged port only.
