Update VLANCan be forced by adding/removing a VLAN in the event VLAN's were added during password mismatch
VTPv1Default, password is only plaintext, no OFF mode, transparent mode won't forward VTP advertisements (v2+ only)
sh vtp statusDomain, version, revision
VTPv2Support for consistency checks, will check MD5 hash for validation of frame, token ring support, does not need to inspect frame for domain name before transparent forwarding.
VTPv3Options seen while running lower version, but not useable. Hidden hashes password, secret uses hash to transfer PW to other devices. Enables use of expanded VLAN's 1005+

Dynamic AutoPort is willing to convert to a trunk link if opposite port is set to Trunk or Dynamic Desirable
Dynamic DesirableActively attempts to negotiate the link into a trunk. Forms with Trunk/DynamicAuto/DynamicDesirable
No-negotiateDisables DTP. Will not send DTP frames and will ignore incoming ones. Can only manually configure a trunk link if DTP is disabled.
