Hi Friend,

Go ahead and change the vtp mode of client to server and there should not be any issue.

Re: VTP question

Remember that when you configure VTP

You should have one VTP server as first switch.

You should change the other switch to VTP client mode before connecting to network

Also make sure that you are using same VTP versions i.e. VTP ver 2

thanks

Re: VTP question

Hi Friend,

You can have multiple switches acting as VTP server in a VTP domain.

When one VTP server fails you can still add/delete or modify Vlans from the other VTP server which will update the rest of the domain.

HTH, rate if it does

Re: VTP question

At the moment both switches are on the network configured, one as a server, one as a client.

I want to change the client to server so we have some redundancy.

could you let me know your comments
