Hi is there a limit on the number of vlans i can have on a vtp server or the number of client devices it can handle
I have a 3560 -8 P'OE and I would like to announce about 25 vlans to 10 cisco 2940's, 10 c2950's and 10 3560's.  Is this possible or should i make manual entries?

VTP can use 4 bytes for mark vlans ID and limmits exist only by model of switches 1024 -Vlans or more.
It will be more than enough for you.

Ok because i ran into a problem before with an older cisco 2950.  How does vtp get announced? Is it on the management VLAN?

on older CISCOs u'll get a max of 64 VLANS, for the amount u are going to handle there should not be any problem.

just make sure  the 3560 is the Server, all the rest place them as clients, connect the swtiches as trunks on both sides and all vlans should propagate nicely ;)
