Comparison Between VCMP and VTP

Comparison Between VCMP and VTP

The differences between Cisco VTP and Huawei VCMP are as follows.
  • Multiple servers can exist in a Cisco VTP domain, and any switch can function as a VTP server. VTP servers synchronize information to each other.
  • Only one switch in a VCMP domain functions as the VCMP server to control all VLAN configurations in the domain.
Table 5-9  Differences in command formats


Command on Huawei Switches

Command on Cisco Switches


Configure the device role or mode.

vcmp role { client | server | silent | transparent } vtp mode { client | off | server | transparent }

A switch used as a VCMP silent in a Huawei VCMP domain is similar to the switch in off mode in a Cisco VTP domain, and directly discards received protocol packets.

Configure the domain name.

vcmp domain domain-name vtp domain domain-name


Configure the domain ID.

vcmp device-id device-id

Not supported

Cisco VTP does not support the configuration.

Configure an authentication password for the domain.

vcmp authentication sha2-256 password password vtp password password


Configuring the protocol version number.

Not supported

vtp version number

Huawei VCMP does not support the configuration.

Check the protocol status.
