Native vlan query

Dear Friends,

Just wanted to know that if i put the native vlan for a trunk port, should it exist in the vlan database of the switch?

For example, if i define a native vlan 900 for a trunk port, should vlan 900 too reside on the vlan database of the switch?

Thanks and Regards

Of course it should be in vlan data orelse how will the switch know which vlan to be treated as native.

Thanks for the clarification. I am sorry if this was an invalid question. The reason i got this doubt was that i saw one 6500 switch (IOS ver 12.2(33) SXH3) with native vlan 900 configured on trunk port but it was not there when i said show vlan command.

I was not sure if there will be anything wrong because of this.

Thanks a lot
