Hi Friend,

You cannot ping from one switch to another switch that could be another issue but as you said vlans are not propogating this could be either related to same issue communication between switches or could be VTP config mismatch.

So can you confirm the ip configured on your IOS switch and IP configured on CATOS switch and are configured on what vlans?

Also can you please paste the complete output of "sh vtp status" and "sh interface fa3/48 switchport" from the IOS switch?

Try this:

switchport trunk allowed vlan 1-1005

Good luck.

VTP version1 and VTP version2 are not interoperable on network devices in the same VTP domain. Every network device in the VTP domain must use the same VTP version. Do not enable VTP version2 unless every network device in the VTP domain supports version2. Make sure that both are running VTP v1.

HTH, please do rate all helpful replies,

They aren't propagating because the vtp domain names do not match one is mcaa and the other is mcca , match them up and recheck, Also make sure the native vlans match on each side .
