Transparent: When you make a change to the VLAN configuration in VTP transparent mode, the change affects only the local switch. The change does not propagate to other switches in the VTP domain. VTP transparent mode does forward VTP advertisements that it receives within the domain.

What are the common issues of VTP?

– VTP domain and password must match. – Configuration has been overwritten by another VTP device. – Consider making VTP domain smaller.

What is VLAN transparency?

VLAN-transparent networks allow tagged packets to pass through without tags being removed or changed. Note: For VDS deployments, only provider networks can be transparent. For NSX Data Center for vSphere and NSX-T Data Center deployments, only tenant networks can be transparent.

How do I disable VTP domain?

A VLAN created on a VTP server switch is automatically advertised to all switches inside the same VTP domain. With VTP V1 and V2 it is not possible to completely disable VTP on Cisco switches; the best you can do is to place the switch in the VTP transparent mode.
