Notes

Note

  • Tested against NXOSv 7.3.(0)D1(1) on VIRL

  • Unsupported for Cisco MDS

  • VTP feature must be active on the device to use this module.

  • This module is used to manage only VTP domain names.

  • VTP domain names are case-sensible.

  • If it’s never been configured before, VTP version is set to 1 by default. Otherwise, it leaves the previous configured version untouched. Use cisco.nxos.nxos_vtp_version to change it.

  • Use this in combination with cisco.nxos.nxos_vtp_password and cisco.nxos.nxos_vtp_version to fully manage VTP operations.
