VTP from server to client mode

Hi,

I have couple switches setup in VTP server mode. All of them have the same VTP revision number, but most of them should be in VTP client mode.

Will switching some of them (but the one I really want to have in VTP server mode) into VTP client mode have negative impact on the network? I do know that if you change a switch (with the highest rev #) from client mode to server mode I could end up with problems. However, in my case it will be switching them from server to client mode with all of them with the same Rev #.

Thanks for the help

Re: VTP from server to client mode

Hello,

change the switches in question to VTP transparent mode first, and then to client mode, that will reset the revision and prevent any possible conflicts.

In addition, in case you need to change the root switch as well, in general the VTP server switch should also be the root for your VLANs. You can set the switch as root by configuring it as:

spanning-tree vlan x priority 0

HTH,

GP
