Cisco Security Manager & Cat6k in client/server vtp mode

Unanswered Question
Jun 18th, 2007

Why won't CSM parse the config of a cat6k that is in client or server vtp mode?

Why does it have to be transparant mode?

I have this problem too.

I have 6500 switches in my network configured as VTP servers and I can not change them to transparent.

Is there any way to add them into Security Manager 3.1 with SERVER mode configured?

Hi,

I am the TME for CSM. Currently CSM will only support VTP transparent since we only parse the running-config file. If you are running server/client it means that your vlan configuration will NOT be in the running-config (but in a seperate file). CSM doesn't read this file so things break. Next version of CSM (3.2 Q1CY08) will work with VTP server/client. The way it works is that it still won't read this extra file but instead it will ignore the whole vlan configuration. So you won't be able to create new vlans when running server/client but still you can assign vlans to interfaces using CSM. You will be personally responsible in making sure the vlan really exist when you configure it in CSM..(so you do this via CLI).
