It depends what vtp mode your switch is in if it even has a vlan.dat and if so, where it is located.

I believe vlan.dat is used by VTP server and trans mode while VTP client only saves it in its running-config. Its late, I could be wrong.

try "dir all-filesystems" command.

I can see

Directory of const_nvram:/

1 -rw- 1596 vlan.dat

on Cat 6500 equipped with SUP720-3B.
