i.e SW1-Sw2-sw3-sw4-sw5. SW1 is my VTP server. I ahve created Vlan 3 & 4 on SW1.

now the query is Can i put SW5 port fas0/8 into vlan 4 from SW1. OR is there only one method get access of SW5 and put the port into Vlan 4.

You need to manually assign Vlan membership on switchports at each switch.

A VTP server does not assign switchport Vlan membership on any VTP client switches.

A VTP server shares the Vlan database with others switches in the same VTP domain that are running in either server or client mode.

In addition, you must make sure the inter-switch links are trunk, else no VTP will be exchanged.

Port on SW5 can be put in Vlan 4


SW2 to SW5

- are in VTP server/client mode for automatic vlan database synchronization


- are in Transparent mode (need to create vlan 4 manually in all switches)

- Connected by trunk allowing atleast vlan4
