Re: stp server and client

Hi,

A VTP domain (also called a VLAN management domain) is made up of one or more interconnected switches that share the same VTP domain name. A switch can be configured to be in one and only one VTP domain.

If your switch is set up in your existing vtp domain you configure the old switches as VTP transparent, you can create and modify VLANs but the changes affect only the individual switch.

See: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/switches/ps700/products_configuration_guide_chapter09186a008007fa37.html#xtocid12

Hi,

Then I would suggest that you set a password

for the VTP domain:

vtp passwd passwd
