Which three statements about VTP features are true? (Choose three.)
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D. E. F. G.
VTP (VLAN Trunking Protocol) is a Cisco proprietary protocol that is used to manage VLANs across a switched network. The VTP protocol allows switches to exchange VLAN information and keep the VLAN configuration consistent across the network. Here are the correct statements about VTP features:
B. When properly configured, VTP minimizes VLAN misconfigurations and configuration inconsistencies. This statement is true. VTP helps to manage the VLAN configuration across the network by propagating VLAN information from a VTP server to other switches in the same VTP domain. By doing so, it ensures that the VLAN configuration is consistent and prevents misconfigurations.
C. When properly configured, VTP maintains VLAN configuration consistency and accelerates trunk link negotiation. This statement is true. VTP ensures that VLAN configuration is consistent and synchronized across all switches in the network, which accelerates the trunk link negotiation process. Without VTP, each switch would need to be manually configured with the same VLAN information.
G. Client, server, and transparent are valid VTP modes. This statement is true. VTP can operate in one of three modes: server, client, or transparent. The server mode is used to create, modify, and delete VLANs, and this information is propagated to all switches in the same VTP domain. The client mode receives and forwards VTP updates, but cannot create, modify, or delete VLANs. The transparent mode forwards VTP updates but does not synchronize VLAN information.
A. VTP works at Layer 3 of the OSI model and requires that a management VLAN IP address be configured. This statement is false. VTP operates at Layer 2 of the OSI model and does not require a management VLAN IP address to be configured. VTP uses multicast messages to communicate VLAN information between switches.
D. Each broadcast domain on a switch can have its own unique VTP domain. This statement is false. A VTP domain is a group of switches that share the same VLAN configuration. A single switch can only be part of one VTP domain, regardless of the number of broadcast domains it has.
E. VTP pruning is used to increase available bandwidth in trunk links. This statement is true. VTP pruning is a feature that allows switches to selectively remove unnecessary VLANs from trunk links, which helps to increase available bandwidth on the link.
F. To configure a switch to be part of two VTP domains, each domain must have its own passwords. This statement is false. A switch can only be part of one VTP domain at a time. Even if a switch has multiple VLANs configured, they must all belong to the same VTP domain. If a switch needs to be part of multiple VTP domains, it must be configured as a VTP transparent switch and have the VLANs manually configured on each domain.
