VTP conversion

Hi,

I have a few switches that are on VTP domain and are all in server mode, I want to make one a server and the rest clients.  What will happen if I convert the servers to clients?

Thanks

VTP conversion

Hi Andy,

I suggest deactivating the VTP Pruning before doing this conversion if you are using it. It is my experience that even though the VTP Pruning should not be affected by this change, it is a very fragile mechanism and has caused numerous network outages in the past so I am actually trying to avoid it. After the conversion, you may reactivate it if needed on the VTP Server.

Otherwise, the conversion of VTP Server switches to the Client mode should be seamless and no intermittent connectivity issues should arise.

Best regards,

Peter
