The vtp domain command can be used to specific the vtp domain name. For the question of full VTP functionality, I think the best way for you to do is ask your Cisco sales team for the feature road map.

Nexus 7000 can only be configured with VTP transparent mode.

Please look at the Usage Guidelines of vtp mode.

Re: nexus 7k in existing domain

Thank you for the reply and the link. One question still remains... What is the purpose of the VTP Domain command? In IOS it is possible to create VLANs without having VTP domain name. Is it step back to CatOs or there is a plan to fully implement VTP on Nexus? It is not a curiosity. VTP plays a crucial role in our data centre environment.

Re: nexus 7k in existing domain

Thanks again. I dont want to be annoying but I am trying to understand what Nexus can do in terms of VTP, routing and virtualization. I am in the middle of the crossroad here trying to figure out which way to go, proceed with Nexus accepting some risk of incompatibility with our existing infrastructure or continue working with 6500 series switches. Just want to clarify... Nexus at the moment supports only VTP transparent mode (no server or client). Correct?

Yes. Currently, it only supports VTP transparent mode.
