I am still pretty new to the networking infrastructure arena and need a little assistance. I am trunking a new Cat65xx w/3 Cat55xx. I want the new Cat65xx to run in server mode and have the rest run in client mode. Will theVLAN interface info AUTOMATICALLY propogate to the new Cat65xx or can I at least export/import it?
Start the 6500 out in VTP client mode. When the vlan information has propagated, then change the 6500 to server mode. This will capture the vlan information. If you do a show config, you can see that the vlan info is not present in client mode, but is present in server mode
It sounds like you are asking about something called dynamic VLANs. You would have to establish a data base of MAC address and the VLAN they should be assigned to. It's a LOT of work up front. The question is, do your devices move around alot? If not, then it's not worth the hassle of setting up dynamic VLANs. Just set the VLAN and not worry about it.
