I have two Catalyst 6509 switches running CatOS 7.6(7) in VTP client mode.
Obviously, no VLAN definition appears in their configuration since their vlan database can only be populated through VTP updates. At that stage I have two questions:
1. where is the vlan database stored (the one I see doing a 'show vlan') if not in the config file ?
2. if it's stored in RAM (rather than NVRAM) what whould happen if I reboot the switches, would they loose their vlan configuration ?
For some reasons I need to move them to transparent mode. My main concern is what would happen just after I change their config from 'vtp client mode' to 'vtp tranparent mode' in terms of vlan database ?
Would they loose their vlan database ?
Can I overwrite all existing vlans with a hardcoded (in config) definition of these vlans ?
Many thanks for your help.
