vpms and vtp question

Hi all,

I need someone to clarify me 1 issue about vpms and another about vtp.

vpms: In cisco's documentation the ASCII file on the tftp server which the VPMS server uses to download info so that properly respond to vpms client requests, contains only the vlan names, not the vlan ID(numbers).

Does this mean that i have manually configure vlan names and numbers on all vpms client switches and the vpms server? If not, how is it guranteeded the unique mapping of vlan names to vlan numbers on all switches?

vtp: Let a client vtp switch, with null domain and dtp in "desirable" mode on a fe port,inserted in a vtp domain so that this fe port connects to a fe port of a vtp server switch. Let the vtp server switch fe port is also in "desirable" mode.

Is there any DTP missmatch due to different domains or not?

Thanks in advance.

A: Only on server on VTP with server/client domain. you can't create vlan on vtp client.

Bob:If not, how is it guranteeded the unique mapping of vlan names to vlan numbers on all switches?

A: exactly, see above. switch does not assing ports to vlans by names, it's done by vlan number.

Bob:vtp: Let a client vtp switch, with null domain and dtp in "desirable" mode on a fe port,inserted in a vtp domain so that this fe port connects to a fe port of a vtp server switch. Let the vtp server switch fe port is also in "desirable" mode.

A:Trunk won't build, they must be in the same domain.
