I have 3 offices, each with a 6000/6500 series switch, each with Sup2/MSFC2's. Each office has a mix of apple mac's and PC's/servers. At 2 of my offices, the apples connect to the network with no problems, but at 1 site, i get problems. The problems are, that when you reboot the mac, it comes up saying the appletalk network is now available. You then have to go to control panel|appletalk, and save the settings. You can then use chooser as normal, and the zones are displayed correctly. Without going to control panel, the zones do not display, and you get limited functionality. The office with the problem, runs RAPID-PVST+, and I have enabled portfast on the ports. (with or withough portfast makes no change)
Anyone got any ideas, as all my mac users have to follow the procedure a couple of times a day!
The only solution I can think of is to disable spanning tree completely on the switch, but I don't really want to!
Many thanks to you all,
