VTP (VLAN Trunking Protocol) is a Cisco proprietary protocol that is used to manage VLANs in a switched network. VTP allows for centralized management of VLAN configurations, which simplifies network administration.

The two statements that are true about VTP are:

A. All switches must be configured with the same VTP domain name: In a VTP domain, all switches should have the same VTP domain name. This allows switches to share VLAN information across the network. If the domain name is different on any switches, then they will not be able to share VLAN information.

C. All switches must be configured with a unique VTP domain name: Each VTP domain in a network must have a unique name. If two or more switches have the same domain name, they will merge their VLAN information, which can cause VLAN configuration issues in the network.

B, D, and E are not true about VTP:

B. All switches must be configured to perform trunk negotiation: While VTP does use trunking to communicate VLAN information, it is not a requirement that all switches be configured to perform trunk negotiation. A switch can function as a VTP client and still receive VLAN information over a non-trunked port.

D. The VTP server must have the highest revision number in the domain: The VTP server with the highest configuration revision number does not have to be the only VTP server in the domain. Other switches can also be configured as VTP servers as long as they have the same domain name and password.

E. All switches must use the same VTP version: While it is recommended to use the same VTP version on all switches in a network, it is not a requirement for VTP to function properly. Switches can interoperate with different VTP versions, although some features may be limited.
