VTP Overview
What is VTP

In Cisco Catalyst® switches the VTP domain can be added through CLI configuration or else it can be learnt from an adjacent VTP Cisco Catalyst® switch. Let’s see this from the below example

 

Switch C is added to the network connecting via a trunk port to Switch B with no VTP domain configured, in this mode when the Switch C receives the first VTP update from the adjacent Switch B , it will become the part of the VTP domain ITKE as identified in the VTP update.
