VTP in Multilayer Switching 6500

I?ve been trying to find out how to configure a 6500 MLS as VTP Server. The customer has 2 x 6500 MLS. The first one is configured as VTP Server with vlan?s configured in it. I want to disable the VTP Server in the first one and make the second 6500 as VTP Server keeping the vlan interfaces configured in the first one.

My doubt is how to configure a 6500 MLS as VTP Server/Client and if I can create vlan?s without defining IP address like the config below.

Catalyst 6500-01

mls rp ip

!

interface Vlan11

ip address 11.11.11.1 255.255.255.0

mls rp vtp-domain sales

mls rp management-interface

mls rp ip

!

interface Vlan12

ip address 12.12.12.1 255.255.255.0

mls rp vtp-domain sales

mls rp ip

Catalyst 6500-02

mls rp ip

!

interface Vlan11

mls rp vtp-domain sales

mls rp management-interface

mls rp ip

interface Vlan12

mls rp vtp-domain sales

mls rp management-interface

mls rp ip

i know it is a basic doubt but I?m unfamiliar with MLS.

Tks,

Marcia.

Re: VTP in Multilayer Switching 6500

I assume your client is ruuning hybrid version on 6500s

VTP and MLS are two different concepts. So even if you configure first 6500 as VTP client it wont impact SVI configuration(interface vlan 11, interface vlan 12 etc) of it.

To make 6500-01 as client and 6500-02 as server.

1) Configure 6500-01 in transparent mode.

set vtp mode transparent

2) Configure 6500-02 in server mode

set VTP mode server

set vtp domain XXX

set vtp passwd YYY

set vtp version 2 (optional but recommended)

set vtp pruning enable ( optional)

3) Now configure 6500-01 in client mode

set VTP mode client

set vtp domain XXX

set VTP passwd YYY

Before switching from transparent to client just make sure the config revision is reset to 0 in 6500-01

sh vtp domain

Let me know if this helps.
