VTP traffic via Transparent mode switch

Unanswered Question
Jun 17th, 2009

Hi, I have three switches SW1->SW2-SW3.


Sw1 and 3 are not directly connected. SW1 & 3 are in same VTP domain, SW2 is in transport mode. All switches are connected with Trunk.


My question is, all Vlans on SW1 will propagate to SW3 or not ?

Hi Rupesh,


This is an excerpt from the catalyst switch documentation:


http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/switches/lan/catalyst4500/12.1/13ew/configuration/guide/vtp.html#wp1020402


Version-Dependent Transparent Mode:


-In VTP version 1, a VTP transparent network device inspects VTP messages for the domain name and version, and forwards a message only if the version and domain name match.


- in VTP version 2, because only one domain is supported in the supervisor engine software, VTP version 2 forwards VTP messages in transparent mode, without checking the version.


Cheers:

Istvan
