While trying to create a new VLAN on a switch stack (that has many VLANs and many interconnected switches) I get an error about the switch not being the primary server for VLAN database. When running the exec command "show VTP status" the switch shows up as 'VTP Operating Mode: Server' and all other switches that I can access show up as client.
First question is: If there is a switch elsewhere in the network that I can't see that is also a server, will I break or screw up the VTP or VLAN database if I set this switch to 'Primary?'
The way I've been reading the documentation, all of the switches in the network default to "Server Secondary" and in order to make configuration changes to the VTP or VLAN database, one of those switches needs to be temporarily set to "Server Primary" via the EXEC command "VTP Primary." After making the configuration changes (i.e. adding a VLAN) the system will eventually reset that primary server back to secondary status.
Second question is: Is my understanding of the functionality described in the above paragraph accurate?
