My core switch is a WS-C6504-E with VTP settings as follows

VTP Version                     : 3 (capable)

Local updater ID is on interface Vl9 (lowest numbered VLAN interface found)
VTP version running             : 1

I think my beta switch is only VTP V1&2, does this mean they will not be able to sync VTP?

Both switches are running VTP version 1 so that's not it.

Do you have a trunk established between the Core and Beta? (show int trunk)  If not, you must have a trunk.

Do you have a VTP password set on the core? If so, you'll need the same password set on Beta.

yes, both of my switch ports are configured as followes connected via fiber:

switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
switchport more trunk

VTP passowrd is not configured on my core A


the VTP password was configured on my beta switch, it had a VTP password stored.  So i did a no VTP password and renamed my VTP Domain name then changed it back to make it sync.  Everthing looks good now.

Thanks for the help.
