2. Add vlan 30 and 40 to SW1 and assign ports 2 through 5 to vlan 30 and assign ports 6 through 10 to vlan 40

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
