    br0: starting userspace STP failed, starting kernel STP


    Hi All,

    Like the title mentions, I am getting the error when starting my network bridge. Turning off STP in the config clears this error but from what I was reading it is a good idea to keep it on. I haven't found much on how to fix it though. Does anyone know what configuration I am missing to get this working and not throwing the error?

    Running CentOS 6.3 64-bit.

    Here is my bridge config if it helps


    DEVICE=br0
    ONBOOT=yes
    TYPE=Bridge
    BOOTPROTO=none
    IPADDR=10.203.8.30
    GATEWAY=10.203.0.1
    STP=on
    DELAY=0

    Thanks

    I take it you are running this bridge mode for VM on the system. Why do you need STP on a single system for VM's?
    I do not have this turned ON on my setup as I seen no good reason for it.

    Yes this is for a VM single system. I do want to look at teaming these down the road and think it would be a good idea to enable this now. I have this working on another machine but I don't remember how this was setup.
