When are VTP messages sent to clients for synchronization while using a VTP server?

When are VTP messages sent to clients for synchronization while using a VTP server?

  • 1- Any time there is a change
  • 2- Every 10 by default
  • 3- Every 5 min by default
  • 4- Never, you should update it manually



  • The correct answer is:

  • VTP VLAN Trunking Protocol
    VTP sends messages between trunked switches to maintain VLANs on these switches in order to properly trunk.
    VTP is a Cisco proprietary method of managing VLANs between switches and runs across any type of trunking mechanism.
    VTP messages are exchanged between switches within a common VTP domain.
    VTP domains must be defined or VTP disabled before a VLAN can be created.
    Exchanges of VTP information can be controlled by passwords.
    VTP manages only VLANs 2 through 1002.
    VTP allows switches to synchronize their VLANs based on a configuration revision number.
    Switches can operate in one of three VTP modes: server, transparent, or client.
    VTP can prune unneeded VLANs from trunk links.
    A VTP client behaves like a VTP server and tr
    ansmits and receives VTP updates on its trunks, but you
    cannot create, change, or delete VLANs on a VTP client. VLANs are configured on another switch in the
    domain that is in server mode..
