vlan 1003 parent vlan missing apply vlan changes failed - HELP!

Answered Question
Jun 14th, 2010

Guys,

I have added the physical Interface for Vlan101, but when i try to add the logical, i get the error message "vlan 1003 parent vlan missing apply vlan changes failed". All the configurations of VTP are listed below and are correct on all 4 switches...

Any reason why i cant add a logical?

I have this problem too.

Hi,

The common cause of this error is when VTP v2 is enabled and there is a device (or devices) on the VTP domain that does not support VTP v2.
Setting your VTP members to use VTP v1 should fix the problem.

Just in case, VTP v2 is not much different than VTP v1. The major difference is that VTP v2 introduces support for Token Ring VLANs. If you use Token
Ring VLANs, you must enable VTP V2. Otherwise, there is no reason to use VTP V2.

Cisco has depreciated the use of Vlan database in the recent IOS's on switch and you should be able to configure the vlans from Global config mode
if using the latest hardware/software.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers,

Hi

VLAN Creation Fails with VLAN 1003 parent VLAN missing Error Message

Switch#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Switch(config)#vlan 102
Switch(config-vlan)#name marketing
Switch(config-vlan)#exit
VLAN 1003 parent VLAN missing
APPLY VLAN changes failed.
Switch(config)#end
Switch#

A misconfiguration on a switch can cause the configuration updates of the VTP to fail. In most cases, the problem is that the new VLAN created in the VTP server switch does not propagate to the VTP client switches, which creates host connectivity issues.

A common cause for this issue is a VTP version mismatch between the switches in a VTP domain. VTP version 1 and VTP version 2 are not interoperable on the network devices in the same VTP domain. A VTP version 2 capable network device can operate with a network device that runs VTP version 1, provided that VTP version 2 is disabled on the VTP version 2 capable network device. VTP version 2 is disabled by default. Every network device in the VTP domain must use the same VTP version. Verify the VTP version that runs on a switch. If VTP version 2 is enabled, disable it in order to resolve this issue.

Verify if the switch is configured properly for other VTP parameters:

  • Verify that the switches are connected through trunk links, because VTP updates are only exchanged over trunk links.

  • Verify that the VTP domain name is exactly the same on the appropriate switches. The name is case sensitive. The VTP updates are only exchanged between switches in the same VTP domain.

  • Verify that the VTP password is exactly the same on all the switches in the domain. The password is case sensitive. If a password is configured, it must be configured on all switches in the domain and the password must be the same.

In case of a VTP convergence issue, where a VTP client does not update the VLAN information, the workaround is to force a VTP convergence by the creation, then the removal of a dummy VLAN on the VTP server. This increments the revision number and forces all VTP clients to update their VLAN database

Yeah i read that a small big ago, but all the configurations look good on all 4 switches...Same domain name, no passwords,

etc.... but i am only able to add the physical interface, not logical.....

accesshollywood2 Mon, 06/14/2010 - 11:51

i got it......

you have to go into the VLAN database to add it...... just cant conf t, then vlan 100...

switch# vlan database

switch (vlan) # vlan 101

Hi

VLAN Can create through VLAN Database as well as in Global Config Mode also.

I this there was issue with Vlan Database file , May be the VLAN that you create in Global config mode was not added in database file.

Hello,

yes you need to first create the L2 object vlan 101 in vlan database (older mode) or in configuration mode (new mode) and then later you can create the L3 object SVI interface vlan 101

vlan 1003 is a legacy vlan used for token ring and it is not supported in modern switches, probably the IOS code tried to to look for a suitable L2 object for SVI vlan 100 and tried to use vlan 1003 failing

Hope to help

Giuseppe
