hi every body!
i have some weird questions about vtp advertisements.
Let say we have two switches: sw1 and sw2
sw1 is vtp server,sw2 is vtp client
sw1 has config#= 2,domian name: cisco
sw1 and sw2 are sychronised.
now a third sw3 with domain name: null and config# 4 is added to the network.
Will sw1(server) will process updates from sw3?
To put simply is it possible for a server with a domain name cisco to receive and process vtp updates from a switch with domain name null ?
thanks a lot !
I tested with some more configurations and here is what i got:
Any new switch(VTP-SERVER/VTP CLIENT) added to the existing network with null domain and higher config# would get updated with the existing domain name and it would change to the existing Config# in the network even if it is less.
In your config sw3 would be updated by Sw1 regardless of who has higher config# because sw3 has a null domain name. sw3 would also get a domain name of cisco.
Its all tested.
