Item Number: 640-801.2.4.16
Single Answer, Multiple Choice

 

Which command is used to set the VTP mode as server on catalyst 2950 switch?

 

 

  1. Switch(config) # set vtp mode server
  2. Switch(config) # vtp server
  3. Switch(config) # vtp mode server
  4. Switch(vlan) # vtp mode server

 

Answer:
C. Switch(config) # vtp mode server

 

Tutorial:
The Switch(config) # vtp mode server command is used to configure VTP mode as server on catalyst 2950 switch. VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) is used to manage all configured VLANs across the switched network. VTP allows the administrator to add, delete and rename the VLANs that will be sent to other switches in that particular VTP domain. VTP is configured in the following three operational modes:

 

 

  • Server: This mode is default configuration type on all Cisco catalyst switches. The switch in VTP server mode can add, delete and rename VLANs in that domain.
  • Client: In this mode switches receive updates from servers. However, switches in client mode are not allowed to make any changes.
  • Transparent: In this mode switches do not participate in VTP domain. The switches in this mode maintain their own database, which is not shared with other switches.

 

The option, Switch(config) # vtp server is incorrect because this command is used to configure server mode on catalyst 2950, 3550, and 3750 switches.

 

The option, Switch(config) # set vtp mode server is incorrect because of incorrect syntax.

 

The option, Switch(vlan) # vtp mode server is incorrect because this command is used to configure VTP mode to server on VLAN database mode.
