Command Syntax

set protocols spanning-tree pvst interface <interface-name> manual-forwarding <true | false>


Parameter

Parameter

Description

interface <interface-name>

Specifies a port name. The value is a string that can be set to a physical port name or a LAG port.

manual-forwarding <true | false>

Manually configure a physical port or a LAG port as a forwarding port. The value could be true or false.

  •   true: manually configures a physical port or a LAG port as a forwarding port.
  •   false: disables manual forwarding on a port.

By default, manual forwarding is disabled.


Usage Guidelines

After manually configuring a physical port or a LAG port as a forwarding port, the state of the port is always forwarding, unless the port is down. The port does not participate in spanning tree calculation and does not send and receive BPDUs.
