VTP config cisco 3750

Hello

How does a VTP database need to configured on a Cisco 3750 stack, and on a ie3000 connected to it?

I read a cisco article that told me to create a vTP server on the stack and a VTP client on the IE3000.  I assigned the same VTP domain name to both switches on the stack (connected together via etherlink) and on the ie3000.

On the Cisco 3750 I configured 8 VLANS all with unique IP addresses. (1,100-107)

On the Cisco ie3000 i configured 2 vlans (1 and 103). I assigned an IP address to vlan1 but not to vlan 103.

I cannot ping a device connected to VLAN103 from within the console or from my PC. The device is not a PC and does not have a firewall.

What am I missing?

Configure the 3750 as a VTP server, and the IE3000 as a VTP Client.
Connect the switches via a trunk.

try re-entering the VTP commands on the client, particularly the domain name and password.
I'm not saying you've entered them incorrectly, but sometimes it works!

Don't forget that on newer switches, just creating an interface in a vlan does not create the vlan itself. Older switches used to do this, but newer ones require explicit creation of the vlan itself. i.e.

#conf t
(config)#vlan 100
(config-vlan)#name "name if you choose to add one"
etc

if you do a sh vlan, do they exist in the list? or for a specific vlan >sh vlan id 107
etc

Oh, and of course the VTP configuration revision on the VTP server must be equal to or higher than the client switch VTP config revision..
