Should the following command (switchport nonegotiate) be placed on an interface that is in access mode or trunk mode?

Correct Answer by John Blakley about 7 years 3 weeks ago

In general, you'd want to use this command to disable negotiation of DTP signals which tries to dynamically form a trunk when another switch is connected to the port. If you do "switchport nonegotiate", you enable trunking on that port and disable sending dynamic trunking protocol (DTP) signals.
