VTP servers with 3650 switches

This, I hope, should be a very quick yes or no type of answer.

Can you have two VTP primary server switches connected to each other  (in this case two 3650's on separate floors of a building with each one of those 3650's supporting multiple 2650 switches connected to them)?

If you can, are there any problems or issues with doing that?

And if you cannot, how do I turn off VTP Primary on one of those 3650 switches?

thank you in advance for any insight,

yes you can, and they can be load balance or fail over, no problem if configured properly

It is as simple as just having them both set as "vtp primary" on the same VTP domain and using the same domain password?

Here is a thread about VTP that I would like for you to look at.
