We have 23 vlans currently. We would like to use a couple of little 2940's we have, but they only support 16 vlans, and when i put them into vtp server or client mode they revert to transparent:

SW_VLAN-6-VTP_MODE_CHANGE: VLAN manager chnging device from SERVER to TRANSPARENT.

We only need to use 3 or 4 VLANS on the switches. Is there any way of making this work? I have enabled VTP pruning, but that doesnt seem to have any effect.

Would it work if i manually set the vlans on the local switch
