Cisco VTP on HP Switches?


Want to propergate vLan information across multiple switches?

Easy in the Cisco world…  Just use VTP – configure a server switch and  your away… (it also has its risks if you introduce another server switch with a lower ID)

What does HP have?  — GVRP (MVRP newer iteration).

Multiple VLAN Registration Protocol (MVRP), which replaced GARP VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP), is a standards-based Layer 2 network protocol, for automatic configuration of VLAN information on switches. It was defined in the 802.1ak amendment to 802.1Q-2005.
