Introduced : BIG-IP_v9.0
Sets the states indicating whether the specified interfaces will participate in the spanning tree protocol. Disabling spanning tree protocol on an interface enables learning and forwarding on it. The spanning tree algorithm then behaves as if the interface did not exist. No STP, RSTP, or MSTP packets are transmitted or received on the interface, and the spanning tree algorithm exerts no control over forwarding or learning on the port. NOTE: Disabling spanning tree protocol on an interface which is a configured member of a trunk disables spanning tree protocol on the trunk as a whole. For a trunk to participate in spanning tree protocol, the protocol must be enabled on all of its configured member interfaces.


    in String [] interfaces,
    in EnabledState [] states


Parameter Type Description
