GVRP and VRRP co-existence

GVRP and VRRP co-existence

Is it possible that both protocol exist in one LAN?

I know that I need to define my VLANS differently on two core switches if i use VRRP.
(owen/backup, primary-ip-address/virtuel-ip-address).

On my Core switches GVRP is enabled and whenever I define a VLAN on one switch, it is propagated to the second swicth and cannot be modified.
(Dynamic VLANs cannot be configured manually)

Can I modify GVRP, so that not all VLANS are registered on the other switches ?

Hi Rainer

I would review chapter 3 in the Advanced traffic guide.

Look at
Table 3-2. Controlling VLAN Behavior on Ports with Static VLANs

It is in the march 2009 manual.

It might be of help.
