VTP configuration to establish client/server connection
: This lab exercise helps to understand the configuration process
of VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) to establish a server and client
connection , assigning VLANs to multiple ports, creating a trunk line
between switches to carry VLANs.
1. Assign IP address
192.168.100.1 255.255.255.0 to SW1 on its interface and IP address of
192.168.100.2 255.255.255.0 to SW2 on its vlan interface
2. Add vlan 30 and 40 to SW1
and assign ports 2 through 5 to vlan 30 and assign ports 6 through 10 to
3. To verify the
configuration, issue show vlan command on SW1
4. Configure SW1 as a VTP
Server and SW2 as a VTP Client and change the VTP domain to certexams
and assign a VTP password of ccna
5. To create the trunk link
that will transport the VLAN configurations from SW1 to SW2, enable
trunking on the port that links between the two switches
6. After this configuration,
you should be able to view the VLANs from SW1 on SW2.
Use show vlan command to verify the VLAN configurations, and show vtp
status command to display VTP specific information
