VTP Advertisements

Summary Advertisements
Subset Advertisements

Request Advertisements – When a request advertisement is sent to a VTP server in the same VTP domain, the VTP server responds by sending a summary advertisement and then a subset advertisement.
VTP Client:
In addition, the VLAN configuration information that a VTP client switch receives from a VTP server switch is stored in a VLAN database, not in NVRAM.
VTP Transparent:
In transparent mode, VLAN configurations are saved in NVRAM (but not advertised to other switches), so the configuration is available after a switch reload.
