VTP and spanning tree parameters

I have a core 6500 configured as VTP SERVER and some access switches configured as VTP CLIENT and i modify the default Spanning tree key parameters for some VLAN on the 6500 the new values will be send to the access switches ?

On the CCO:

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/473/21.html

When you add, delete, or change a VLAN in a Catalyst, the server Catalyst, where the changes were made, increments the configuration revision and issues a summary advertisement, followed by one or several subset advertisements...

The VTP protocols transport the Max Age, Hello Time, Forward Delay VLAN spanning tree information ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: VTP and spanning tree parameters

If you look at VLAN 10 in your example you can see that it shows both the local timer configuration and the inherited timers from the root bidge

The access switch is configured for:

Configured hello time 2, max age 20, forward delay 15

But it is using:

hello 1, max age 13, forward delay 9

which are those configured on the root bridge (Core Switch):

Bridge Max Age 13 sec Hello Time 1 sec Forward Delay 9 sec

Re: VTP and spanning tree parameters

No these parameters are carried in the Spanning Tree Configuration BGPU's which are sent by the root bridge and are used by all bridges within the domain. VTP does not have the ability to distribute these values.

Re: VTP and spanning tree parameters

Thanks for the reply.

But why if i verify the spannning tree paramenters on a access switches i found that these values are different from that ones configured on the core switches ?

SWITCH CORE> (enable) sh config

This command shows non-default configurations only.

Use 'show config all' to show both default and non-default configurations.
