RE: VTP Server redundancy ? posted 09/11/2007

Nice! I am not a consultant, and we typically buy IP Services anyway, so
I hadn't noticed this.

In any event, I was recently called a "mad scientist" by an engineer at
our reseller because all of my recent designs route to the access layer.
I think it should be the default design, but most people seem somewhat
surprised by it.

EIGRP stub routing is also provided.

One problem I see with routing to the access layer is the premium price
that
Cisco charges for the IP Services image on the 3560 and 3750 switches.
If
you don't buy it, you're stuck with static routing, RIP, or trunking.

Actually you shouldn't design networks that need vlans switched all over
the
place anymore... it's just a bad design. I can tell you first hand all
the
problems I have seen as a consultant these last 2 years fixing messes
almost
daily.

The best designed network has no trunks; If a company buys layer 2
switches,
the trunks should minimize the number of vlans allowed on the trunks,
and
even then I can't see using more than 2 or 3 vlans per switch. Its 2007
already, we have 3560G's and 3750's like water.

(I can't wait for the CCDE)

Have multiples VTP servers on your netwok...and get used to make changes
from one......but you can make changes from any one .... remember that
all
your vtp configuration has to be exactly the same....

I'm hoping someone can help me with VTP Server redundancy.

Is it was simple as having two VTP servers in a VTP domain, or am I
missing
something ?

Thanks
Thomas
