hi every body!
I find conflicting material about switch in transparent mode.
one cisco documents says:
Switch in vtp transparent mode saves vlan information in vlan.dat on flash and nvram.Upon reboot, if information in vlan.dat differs from that of nvram,switch use vlan.dat"
The other cisco press book says:
"When configured in vtp transparent mode, switch saves global configuration mode vlan configuration in switch configuration file. When the switch boots up, vlan database file is cleared,the vlan configuration stored in the switch configuration file is read which then populates the vlan database"
which one is correct?
thanks a lot!
When running client/server the info is not saved in running config , it is in the vlan.dat file.
When the switch is in transparent mode and you create vlans it is in the running config and will show up in the running config , to save the config and vlans info a "write mem" or "copy run start" command is needed to save the vlan information to the starup config .
