I have two (2) catalyst 4948's that I am trying to get to talk to each via a trunk and I also have 1 routed interface on each switch. I have one routed interface per switch and between them I have a L2 trunk. What I want is if a PC is connected to switch 1 and has to go to switch 2 I don't want it to take the routed interface out on switch 1 and come back in on switch 2. I want local traffic to flow between the switches via the trunk. The only problem is, it isn't working. I have routes on both switches but I can't talk between the switches over the trunk. Can someone shed some light on this. Thanks.
If your using VTP, use vtp version 2.
Do this on both switches. This will set them as both servers.
# vtp mode server
# vtp version 2
# vtp domain xxx
# vtp password mypassword
# vtp pruning
"show vlan brief" should show vlan 41 on both switches.
