I would like to trunk a VLAN from our core switch (Cisco Catalyst 6509) to an access switch (Cisco Catalyst 3548)... We do NOT use VTP on our network.
I have enabled IEEE 802.1Q encapsulation trunk mode on the core switch (Cisco Catalyst 6509) port with the following command:
set trunk 5/5 on dot1q
I have enabled IEEE 802.1Q encapsulation, trunk mode, and allowed trunking of all VLANs on the access switch (Cisco Catalyst 3548) port with the following commands:
switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q switchport mode trunk switchport trunk allowed vlan all switchport access vlan 200
Am I required to add anything to the local VLAN database on the access switch? Can someone explain what the VLAN database command is used for on access switches? I notice I can add / remove VLANs from within this command. But is it necessary when we are not using VTP? Is the "switchport access vlan" command on the port enough?
