If the domain name is not the same, it won't interfere.

You can also make either one VTP Mode Transparent.

Hope this helps.

Hello Just,

as Leo noted different names no VTP interaction.


if you want to setup trunks between these new switches and production switches you need to configure the trunks with

switchport mode trunk

DTP compares VTP names and would not allow the trunk to be setup

Hope to help
