Hi Samir,

Do the VTP domains match, and are you using authentication at all?

I have not tried yet to interoperate VTP2 and 3 although it is designed to be backwards compatible.

Is changing the 6506 to version 3 a viable option?

IT seems to be if VTP 2 has connected to any VTP 2 switch (regardless to Client/Sever) it will get update from those switch. It VTP 2 switch prefer VTP2 update over VTP 3.

So solution is first make connected switch in transaparent mode and make a configuration on switch which need to sync with VTP 3.
