I would like to get input on VTP Modes.
We have 3 Modes, Server ( Create, delete, change) VLAN information.
Client Mode where you cannot delete/add or change VLAN.
So if i have a switch 3550 which is in Server Mode, then according to Server Mode, we can create vlans and etc, now lets say i have a Switch running in a CLIENT MODE, i have got users connected on the switch, can i create vlan's to divide my users in different VLAN's. Or is it because my switch is in VTP Client Mode i will not be able to divide my connected users to different VLAN's.
I hope i am clear..can i create VLAN's on a switch running in VTP Client mode to divide my users into different groups. Like VLAN -10 & VLAN-20..etc..
If you want to create vlans you will do that on the switch in server mode.
If the switch in client mode, verify it is in the same domain as the server. If it is then all the vlan database info will be sent to the client. This simplifies the vlan building and eliminates the need to allow vlan's across the trunk from the main switches if they were all in server mode doing their own thing.
Place one switch as the server, create the domain.
Take the other switch, make it a client and make sure you put in the same domain.
Then build the vlans in the server and your are done. Once you have a host you just configure the port with the correct settings.
