CCNA simulator for vtp and vlan

Unanswered Question
Jul 16th, 2007

I am a confused as to why there are two vlan config modes and will the simulators except either version.

Other than the fact that extended vlans cant be configured in vlan database mode are there any other reasons why you would use one or the other?


I have this problem too.

Actually, I do have an answer for this, but you should verify it own your own.

Older versions of IOS (I'm pretty sure <12.0) did not have the newer vlan configuration mode. Newer versions (>=12.0) warn you that vlan database is deprecated, and that you should learn the newer vlan configuration mode.

For exam purposes, I would recommend learning both (I don't know if you need to know both, but it sure shouldn't hurt you).

For real life purposes, depending on your IOS version, you may not have a choice about which mode to use, so you should still learn how to do both!

If my facts are off (like the IOS version numbers), than someone please correct me, but I believe the gist of my response is absolutely correct!
