Manual VLAN pruning on a Cat 3550

Have a question or want to start a discussion? Post it! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I realize that VLANS 1,1002-1005,1006-4094 are prune ineligible with
VTP pruning, but I'm wondering about the correct procedure for manually
pruning these VLANs from trunks.  Since you can manually specify what
VLANS are allowed on a trunk, and since you can allow only the VLANS
that contain ports on both ends of the trunk, here's the
question.....Should you manually prune and observe the prune ineligible
VLANS in the 'switchport trunk allowed vlan' statement, or is it OK to
only specify the VLANS that are common to the endpoint switches?  I'm
asking this primarily as to what might be expected on the CCIE Lab exam.
