I'm trying discover the Cisco Catalyst 6500 switch with FWSM & IDSM modules installed on it, but it displays error saying VTP mode should be transparent..

But the Campus network needs the VTP mode of the 6500 switch as server... how can I overcome this and discover the 6500 switch with the FWSM & IDSM...

can someone give your inputs on this...

The FWSM is a high-performance, space-saving, stateful firewall module that installs in the Catalyst 6500 series switches and the Cisco 7600 series routers.Firewalls protect inside networks from unauthorized access by users on an outside network. The firewall can also protect inside networks from each other

Refer the "FWSM configuration guide" present in the following url for more information on FWSM:
