I have a network that will be extended to another building. I have all the vlans defined in router Bldg1. The connection to Bldg2 is using a Layer2 switch with a routed link thru fiber. How I can transfer the vlan information from the other Bldg ?
One switch should be the VTP server and the other should be a VTP client. Be aware that introducing a switch with a higher revision number can cause problems because the config from the switch with the higher revision number is applied.
You can configure the new switch as vtp transparent and manually configure the vlan information.
It sounds like you are required to have a routed link here, is that true?
If you have to stick with a routed link, you will not be able to use the same VLANs. You can re-use the VLAN numbers in the new building, but that will not give connectivity to the corresponding bldg 1 VLAN with that number.
Some other routers can use L2TPv3 in order to make an xconnect, which transports L2 over a routed hop. Unfortunately, your switches do not support this feature.
Now, if you have some leeway in your configuration, I would suggest trunking over to the new building, and the routed interface on the 3550 be converted to an "interface VLAN" which can still route when necessary.
The VTP discussion is an afterthought, you can use it or not, but it doesn't really matter unless you have L2 connectivity anyway. I prefer to keep VTP out of the equation unless you have LOTS of switches and LOTS of VLANs.
