Hi


No u r standby will not work as a server,it will be in client mode.


If these swithes are u r core,then configure them to be as vtp servers one as a primary and other as secondry.


Thanks

I don't think your problem is related to HSRP so the title is a bit misleading.


Let's see the output from the following commands on both switches:


show int trunk

show vtp status

show vtp password

show vlan


Thanks

Amit,


The VTP assignment is not dynamic. If you only have 2 switches, I recommend configuring both as VTP servers.
