VTP Pruning. (Question #61)

Consider two switches connected to each other via a trunk link. Here is some output from Switch1

Switch1#sh vtp stat
VTP Version : 2
Configuration Revision : 25
Maximum VLANs supported locally : 1005
Number of existing VLANs : 6
VTP Operating Mode : Client
VTP Domain Name : cisco
VTP Pruning Mode : Enabled
VTP V2 Mode : Enabled
VTP Traps Generation : Disabled
MD5 digest : 0x37 0xA5 0x32 0x9F 0x4B 0xFE 0x41 0x96
Configuration last modified by at 7-15-93 06:13:07

Note that VTP pruning is enabled on this switch.

Assuming that you have full access to both switches Switch1 and Switch2 and are allowed to change anything you like, suggest at least two different ways of disabling VTP pruning on Switch1 from which the above VTP status output was gathered.


Use the no vtp pruning command
or change the vtp mode to transparent.
