In a VTP domain you can only have one server so I have read. Now if you have 6500a as a root sw and a 6500b as a broot sw and have hsrp set up between them. The 6500a will be the server, so what will the 6500b in this design be.
I guess my ? is should the 6500b also be VTP servers in case the 6500a fail. If not then what happens if the 6500a fails and the 6500b is config as a client. Or does this even matter.
I hope Im making since any and all input is greatly appreciated.
When you add VLANs you only have to do it on one server (it doesn't matter which server you do it on). Then that server tells the other server and all the clients about the new VLAN via VTP if they are all in the same VTP domain. You don't have to do anything on the clients.
