VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) Server Mode

VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) server mode is the default VTP mode for all Catalyst switches. At least one server is required in a VTP domain to propagate VLAN information within the domain. We can create, add, or delete VLANs on a VTP domain VTP Server and change VLAN information in a VTP Server. The changes made in a switch in server mode are advertised to the entire VTP domain.

VLAN Trunking Protocol (VTP) Client Mode

A network switch in VTP client mode requires a server switch to inform it about the VLAN changes. We CANNOT create, add, or delete VLANs in a VTP client.
