I understand that a switch in vtp tranparent mode serves as a relay for a vtp domain. Its job is to receive and relay the vtp messages to other switches in vtp domain without applying any configurational changes to itself.
My book discusses a trouble shooting method by working out a problem.
The toplogy is there are three switches sw1,sw2 and sw3. Sw1 and sw3 are vtp server and client respectively while the sw2 is transparent mode.
All switches are connected in triangular fashion.
The problem was that vlan 3 was not being forwarded on trunk between sw1 and sw2.
Here is what my book says while ruling out vtp pruning being a problem:
"Vtp pruning can be ruled out because earlier examples showed all three switches have atleast one interface in vlan 3 and in connect state."
The important terms in the above excerpt are " all three switches" which include sw2 ( transparent mode).
The book is implying sw2 ( transparent mode) can participate in vtp pruning.
All this comes down to one question Does a switch, in transparent mode participate in vtp pruning when the command " vtp pruning is enabled on the vtp server switch ?
