    Design & Configure

    VTP transparent mode (Cisco)

    VTP Transport mode does not synchronize VLAN configuration information with other switches. VTP advertisements when received are not applied to the VLAN database. This mode is used when you want to make the switch independent from current vlan structure. This mode has lowest impact when adding new switch to your switching topology.

    To configure switch with transparent mode:

    switch# configure terminal
    switch(config)#vtp domain
    switch(config)#vtp password cisco
    switch(config)#vtp mode transparent


    To verify the VTP mode use:

    switch#show vtp status
    VTP Version : 1
    Configuration Revision : 0
    Maximum VLANs supported locally : 1005
    VTP Operating Mode : Transparent
    VTP Domain Name :
    VTP Pruning Mode : Disabled
    VTP V2 Mode : Disabled
    VTP Traps Generation : Disabled


    Check how to configure VTP Client mode.
