Hello,

I just created 4 vlans on my cisco 3560 switch -which is in VTP server mode - but when i issue a sh vlan command, the newly created vlans are not there..

Actually only one of then shows up. But yesterday it wasn't there..this is bizzare. I issue a no shut command just for fun. but i follow the basic vlan creation steps below
HOSTNAME(config)#int vlan 191
HOSTNAME(config-if)#desc Demo-WifiCrew
HOSTNAME(config-if)#exit
HOSTNAME(config)#int vlan 192
HOSTNAME(config-if)#desc Demo-CafeInt
HOSTNAME(config-if)#exit
HOSTNAME(config)#int vlan 193
HOSTNAME(config-if)#desc Demo-CafeMGT
HOSTNAME(config-if)#exit
HOSTNAME(config)#do sh vlan

--

sh vlan command output below. 190 is the only one that showed up a day later.

Type this in your switch:

VLAN (Number) in config mode.

This should add it to the VLAN database.
