Re: VLANS

If they are servers in the same VTP domain, there is no difference. Creating a VLAN on a VTP server, no matter whether the switch is "core" or "edge" results in the same behavior. The VLAN database revision number is incremented on the VTP server where you created the VLAN, and subsequent VTP advertisements will contain the higher revision number and the new VLAN information. All other VTP servers and VTP clients in the same domain will update their VLAN database accordingly when they see the advertisement with the revision number higher than their own.

Re: VLANS

Assuming both the switches are in the same VTP domain, it is always advisable to add/delete VLAN from core switches, just becasue of better administration , security and control. But you can always make other edge switches in server mode. I dont see any advantage for that. Because some times edge switches are accessible to helpdesk guys.
