If you want to use VTP on a Cisco Nexus 3000 series switch, you can just forget it. They only support transparent mode. That’s only useful if you have a VTP server somewhere else. I don’t understand why Cisco doesn’t support server and client modes in the 3000 series, especially when they support SVI. It’s not a license issue either. Cisco TAC confirmed this all, and the engineer that I spoke with is just as confused by all of this. Moral of the story is, don’t use 3000 series switches as your core layer if you wish to have them manage VTP. Oh well, my loss is your gain.
