Remember – VTP is sent untagged (so ends up on the native VLAN)


When VTP sends updates, they are sent without tags. So (assuming the native VLAN is VLAN 1) if you have restricted your trunk port at the receiving end with a command like:

switchport trunk allowed vlan 2,10,20

it will drop all untagged traffic – including the VTP updates.
Solution

switchport trunk allowed vlan add 1

One Response to Remember – VTP is sent untagged (so ends up on the native VLAN)

  1. PZ says:

    You can always change the native vlan to some other number (on both sides of the trunk) and VTP updates should flow if you disable VLAN 1 like we do.
