VLANs: VTP Update Process

In order for Client and Server switches to propagate VLAN changes to the rest of the network, here is the process by which VTP uses to disseminate VLAN configuration changes:

  1. A New VLAN is added to the VTP Server
  2. Configuration Revision Number increments up by one
  3. VTP Advertisement is sent out to all VTP neighbors
  4. VTP Clients receive higher Configuration Revision number
  5. Clients begin to sync updated VLAN database to their own
