Issue Description

cisco switch is not working with or S5700 to transfer vlan database

Alarm Information


Handling Process

asked customer to configure GVRP:
port link-type trunk
port trunk allow-pass vlan 2 to 4094
gvrp registration fixed

and problem still persist, then asked customer if the other side working with GVRP or not after checking we figured out that it is working with VTP(same as GVRP but is is cisco protocol)

Root Cause

customer wants  huawei switch act as VTP client to Cisco Switch and this is not applicable


after configuring Cisco switch with GVRP, vlan database transfered normaly between two swtich


when you need to let Huawei switch work with any vendor to transfer vlan database, you need to work with standard protocol like GVRP or VCMP
