Lab instructions

The aim of this lab is to check your ability to configure VTP and VLAN on a small network of four switches. This lab will help you to prepare your ICND1 exam.

1.Configure the VTP-SERVER switch as a VTP server

2.Connect to the  3 other switches and configure them as VTP clients.
All links between swiches must be configured as trunk lines.

3.Configure VTP domain name as "TESTDOMAIN" and VTP password as "cisco"

4.Configure VLAN 10 with name "STUDENTS" and VLAN 50 with name "SERVERS"

5. Check propagation on all switches of the VTP domain.

Solution

Configure the VTP-SERVER switch as a VTP server

VTP-SERVER(config)#vtp mode server

Verify the VTP configuration using the "show vtp status command"

VTP-SERVER#show vtp status
VTP Version                     : 2
Configuration Revision          : 4
Maximum VLANs supported locally : 255
Number of existing VLANs        : 7
VTP Operating Mode              : Server
VTP Domain Name                 : TESTDOMAIN
VTP Pruning Mode                : Disabled
VTP V2 Mode                     : Disabled
VTP Traps Generation            : Disabled
MD5 digest                      : 0xAE 0x4F 0x3F 0xC5 0xD3 0x41 0x9C 0x11
Configuration last modified by 192.168.1.1 at 3-1-93 00:27:41
Local updater ID is 192.168.1.1 on interface Vl1 (lowest numbered VLAN interface found)



Connect to the  3 other switches and configure them as VTP clients.
All links between swiches must be configured as trunk lines.

VTP-CLIENT3(config)#vtp mode client

Verify the VTP configuration using the "show vtp status command"

VTP-CLIENT3#sh vtp status
VTP Version                     : 2
Configuration Revision          : 4
Maximum VLANs supported locally : 255
Number of existing VLANs        : 7
VTP Operating Mode              : Client
VTP Domain Name                 : TESTDOMAIN
VTP Pruning Mode                : Disabled
VTP V2 Mode                     : Disabled
VTP Traps Generation            : Disabled
MD5 digest                      : 0xAE 0x4F 0x3F 0xC5 0xD3 0x41 0x9C 0x11

Configure VTP domain name as "TESTDOMAIN" and VTP password as "cisco"

1. Configure each link between switches as a trunk line

interface GigabitEthernet1/1
switchport mode trunk

interface GigabitEthernet1/2
switchport mode trunk

 

2.On the server :

VTP-SERVER(config)#vtp domain TESTDOMAIN

VTP-SERVER(config)#vtp password cisco

 

3.On each client :

VTP-CLIENT1(config)#vtp password cisco

VTP-CLIENT1(config)#vtp domain TESTDOMAIN



Configure VLAN 10 with name "STUDENTS" and VLAN 50 with name "SERVERS"

On the VTP server switch, configure the following commands

VTP-SERVER(config)#vlan 10

VTP-SERVER(config-vlan)#name STUDENTS

VTP-SERVER(config)#vlan 50

VTP-SERVER(config-vlan)#name SERVERS


Check propagation on all switches of the VTP domain.

Use the "show vlan brief" on each switch to check propagation of the 2 VLANS.

VTP-SERVER#show vlan brief
