  2. HI Rene,

    There are an little error in this sentence:

    Let’s see if we are able to synchronize some VLANs. We’ll start with something simple:

    SW1(config)#vlan 100

    I think its SW1 instead of SW2(config-vlan)#exit

    Thanks for all! very easy to study with your explanations.

  3. Thanks Luis, we will correct it.

  4. Hello Jama

    Yes this is normal. If a switch is configured as a CLIENT with a specific VTP domain, then it will only forward VTP updates that are in its own domain. If you change the password, it cannot register to the VTP server and thus will not accept VTP updates from the specific domain (or from any domain), because it doesn’t properly belong to it. The only way to have a switch forward VTP updates is in transparent mode.

    I hope this has been helpful!
