Re: Difference between VLAN shutdown and suspend ?

Hi:

If you want to maintain VLAN state throughout your L2 network but prevent use, you would suspend the VLANS from your VTP server so that status can be propagated to the other switches. If you want to prevent individual switches (in client VTP mode) from using a given set of VLANS you would one by one configure the VLANS in shutdown status on each

switch desired.
