vpt set to transparent and need to change to client

Answered Question

I have a old c3500xl, running ios version -c3h2s-mz.120-5.WC16.bin

How can I change the vtp operation mode from transparent to client.

from the ios I don't see how to setup to client mode.

i.e.

SW2#conf t

Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.

SW2(config)#vtp ?

file Configure IFS filesystem file where VTP configuration is stored.

Never used a FILE???

Please help,

yanic
