We are installing a new switch in our infrastructure. This is a switch that cannot be joined in our VTP domain because the VLAN's we create on this switch may not be visible on other switches.
So our VTP server is a Cat 6500 running CatOS ver6.3. The new switch in transparent mode runs IOS 12.2SX.
Both switches are connected via ISL trunks.
VTP pruning is enabled on the VTP server.
Now the problem is that VLAN10 (that is configured on the VTP server, and manually on the transparent) is pruning on the trunk between those 2 switches. Because of this no broadcasts are received on the new switch, and this is our problem
We found out that you can enable per interface and per vlan pruning on the IOS switch, but as fare as we could find, this was not possible on the Cat OS.
Anyone an idea how we can solve this problem without having the new server to be a VTP client?
An other idea could be to disable VTP pruning on VLAN 10 on the VTP server, but due to to impact on a production network, I prefer an other solution.
