Spanning-Tree Root

Hey All,

Still getting used to Brocade and I must be doing something really dumb but I can't figure out what.  I have two MLXes and have a couple fo vlans between the two with spanning-tree is enabled.  But looking at the spanning-tree details, it looks like both switches are root.  Am I reading this wrong?  Thanks.

Config:

spanning-tree

!

!

vlan 1 name DEFAULT-VLAN

no spanning-tree

!

vlan 210 name User-MOV4

tagged ethe 6/1 ethe 6/23 to 6/24

router-interface ve 210

!

vlan 211 name User-MOV5

tagged ethe 6/1 ethe 6/23 to 6/24

router-interface ve 211

!

Switch 1:

MOV4-MLX-RC01#sh spanning-tree vlan 210

VLAN 210 - STP instance 0

Re: Spanning-Tree Root

Figured out the issue.  I was missing the "no route-only" on one of the routers.  It is working as expected now.
