Trunking between Cisco 3560 and Cisco 500 series catalyst switch

Hi,

I got a Cisco 3560 switch in which I have configured the Gi0/1 as trunk. I need all VLAN info to be received on a Cisco Express 500 series catalyst switch on another floor of the company. Could you please guide me with the configs?

Hi,

I don't remember if the 500 support VTP, if it does it could be an option to set the 500 as VTP client and receive all VLANs.

Otherwise, configure the port that is connected to the 3560 as trunk and create the VLANs as well, and assign the correct ports to the proper VLANs.

Exactly what are you trying to accomplish?

I have four VLAN's configured in my Cisco 3560. I need these VLAN's to be available in the other floor of my company where I have a Cisco Catalyst Express 500 series switch. I have fiber connectivity to the other floor.

It does support VTP.

You can create a VTP domain and propagate the VLANs across the trunk or, you can configure the four VLANs manually on the 500.

Here's the 500 guide:

Seems all VLAN information won't be propogating automatically to the express 500 series switch and I need to manually add them.

Hi

Catalyst Express 500 series switches support only  VTP transparent mode.       There is currently no support for VTP client or VTP server mode. The  user must       manually configure all VLANs that are used on the switch.

in 3560 create the vlan manually and create the same vlan in the CE500 also.

  If you only have 4 vlans vtp isn't worth the time and effort anyway .
