Figure out all the commands you need to enter for everything, put it in a
text file, and tftp that into the running config.  Obviously test it well
before hand, and schedule a reload on the device just as a backup.

Subject: [c-nsp] remove spanning-tree without being service effecting

I have a MSTP ring that I want to remove spanning-tree all together, and
manually shut down my "dead" link.  How can I remove or disable
spanning-tree without driving to each site?  If I use the commands
"spanning-tree bpdufilter" or "spanning-tree bpduguard"  they both
err-disable the port; which would cause my connectivity to the switch to go
down.  I also use the command "spanning-tree portfast trunk"  if I do that
command first before the bpduguard/filters will it not err-disable the


Is there a better way to go about this??
