GVRP does not work in the same fashion as VTP (Server - Client). When you have it enabled globally and on the interfaces that are interconnecting switches, It will propagate the VLANs created on the first switch where they were created statically to the GVRP enabled ports. For this to work on an access port the end device has to be GVRP enabled. (GVRP enabled NICs if servers or PCs).
Since GVRP requires support for tagging, the port must be configured in Trunk mode or General mode.
The VLAN's propagated via GVRP to the downstream switches would be considered dynamic vlans versus static. If you are getting the error " vlan not created by user", this is what is being referenced.
Only static vlans (manually created) can be added to a port configured as an access port.
From the admin guide
"Adjacent VLAN-aware devices can exchange VLAN information with each other by using Generic VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP). GVRP is based on the Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) and propagates VLAN information throughout a bridged network.
My notes explaining the above
***[Adjacent VLAN-aware devices: switch to switch, switch port with GVRP enabled, set as General or Trunk to a GVRP-Enabled NIC on server or pc]
When a port joins a VLAN by using GVRP, it is added to the VLAN as a dynamic member, unless this was expressly forbidden in the VLAN To Port Page. If the VLAN does not exist, it is dynamically created when Dynamic VLAN creation is enabled for this port."
*** This will allow you to add to an access port as untagged. ***
Since you have to perform this, GVRP is not the solution for propagating VLANs to end devices. Might as well create all statically.
I have gone in via CLI and performed the following:
vlan X (where X is the ID.... ex....vlan 2)
** you will receive a message that the vlan has changed from dynamic to static for GVRP VLANs
