I am trying to figure out what would happen in the following scenario:
I have two switches stacks on my network, one (Switch stack A) in a VTP domain with VLANs and one (Switch stack B) not in a VTP domain and all ports and traffic in VLAN1. These two switch stacks have a trunk between that allows them to pass traffic back and forth between the two.
If I change the mode of switch stack B from server to client and then join it to the domain on Switch stack A, will they still be able to communicate and the network operate as it had been before?
I believe it will since all traffic on Switch stack B is in VLAN1, B will receive the VTP database with all the VLAN information and I should then be able to assign ports on B to various VLANs.
you are exactly right: by changing your Switch B to VTP client mode and adding it to the same VTP domain (be careful, the VTP domain name is case-sensitive), Switch B will receive all the VLAN information from Switch A, and you will be able to assign ports to VLANs that are accessible from both switches.
