I'm currently changing the vtp mode in all my access switches in my datacenter from CLIENT to TRANSPARENT. When doing this on a Catalyst WS-C2950G-24-EI I received a syslog message that said
"May 15 13:39:02.871: %DTP-5-DOMAINMISMATCH: Unable to perform trunk negotiation on port Gi0/2 because of VTP domain mismatch"
Behind Gi0/2 (a 802.1Q trunk) is a Catalyst 6509-E which is VTP SERVER.
Theory says I would have to add "switchport nonegotiate" on this trunk. Do I have to do this even if I subsequently change the Cat 6509-E into a VTP TRANSPARENT too?
In other words: does this domainmismatch-thing happen only if there is a vtp server and a vtp transparent on the same trunk? What happens, if both devices are vtp transparent?
Thanks for any suggestions.
