Refer to the exhibit. The network has converged and Switch_6 has been elected root bridge of the STP tree. However, network traffic analysis indicates that Switch_1 would be a better root bridge. How can the network administrator make this change, assuming that the spanning-tree priorities are at the default settings?
- Set the bridge priority of Switch_1 to 32,768.
- Set the bridge priority of Switch_6 to 65,565.
- Set the bridge priority of Switch_1 to 4,096.
- Set the bridge priority of Switch_6 to 255.
Answers Explanation & Hints:
The switch priority is a value between 0-61,440 in increments of 4,096. Switch priority is initially set to 32,768 (the default). Therefore, Switch_1 can become the root bridge if the priority is set to a value between 0-28,672.
