VTP (Sim) Practice lab for Switch Exam

VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) Switch Lab

A company has added two new layer3 switches, one will act as distribution-layer switch while other will play the role of access-layer switch as shown in figure. You task is configure VTP (vlan trunking protocol) to distributing the VLAN information distribution-layer switch to the access-layer switch. Also configure interVLAN routing on the distribution layer switch to route traffic between the different VLANs that are configured on the access-layer switches; however, it is not compulsory for you to make the specific VLAN port assignments on the access-layer switches.


Please reference the following table for the VTP and VLAN information to be configured:
Tasks and requirements:
VTP Domain name
Cisco

VLAN Ids
40
41
IP Addresses
172.16.71.40/24
172.16.132.41/24
These are your specific tasks:
1. Configure the above VTP information with the distribution layer switch (Dswitch) as the VTP server
2. Configure the VTP information with the access layer switch (Aswitch) as a VTP client
3. Configure VLANs on the Dswitch
4. Configure inter-VLAN routing on the Dswitch
5. Specific VLAN port assignments will be made as users are added to the access layer switches in the future.
Note:  All VLANs and VTP configurations are to completed in the global configuration of Switch.

Solution and Explanation: 
1) Configure the VTP information Dswitch:
 Open the console of distribution layer switch (Dswitch) and configure it with following configuration for above task:
DSwitch>enable
DSwitch#configure terminal
Dswitch(config)#vtp mode server
Dswitch(config)#vtp domain Cisco 
2) Configure the VTP information with the access layer switch as a VTP client
 Access the console of Access layer switch Aswitch for performing the following configurations:

ASwitch>enable
Aswitch#configure terminal
Aswitch(config)#vtp mode client
Aswitch(config)#vtp domain Cisco

3) Configure VLANs on the distribution layer switch
According to lab requirement create VLANs on a Dswitch by using the “vlan vlanID#” command in global configuration mode instead of “database vlan” command:
Dswitch(config)#vlan 40
Dswitch(config)#vlan 41
Assign the IP addresses for Vlans:
Dswitch(config)#interface vlan 40
Dswitch(if-config)#ip address 172.16.71.40 255.255.255.0
Dswitch(if-config)#no shutdown
Dswitch(if-config)#interface vlan 41
Dswitch(if-config)#ip address 172.16.132.41 255.255.255.0
Dswitch(if-config)#no shutdown
Dswitch(if-config)#exit
4) Configure inter-VLAN routing on the Dswitch

Dswitch(config)#ip routing
Dswitch(config)#exit
Dswitch#Write (save configurations)
5) Configure the VTP information with the access layer switch as a VTP client
Aswitch#configure terminal
Aswitch(config)#vtp mode client
Aswitch(config)#vtp domain cisco
Aswitch(config)#exit
Aswitch#copy run start
