Cisco Vlans and Windows XP Pro

By zsmitchell ·
Here is the issue...We have a network with 5 vlans , and 15 endpoint switches (2950s). In two areas of the network, a port has been designated switchport access only to VLAN 10...that port then runs to a linksys hub, where the devices on that hub all go to vlan 10.

in two instances, I have attempted to replace that hub with another 2950, and changed the connecting ports to trunks with all vlans allowed. I then set the specific ports on the 2950 to the vlan I want.

In both instances, I lost complete connectivity. In one vlan it was just a straigh network with no AD, in the second one, it has an AD domain controller.

Can someone point me to something I may have missed? I know what I know of Cisco IOS through trial and error, and am by no means an expert.

A few questions,

Are the VLANs configured on the new 2950?
Do you know if you have VTP enabled?

Can you post the output of the following privileged EXEC command --> Show VTP Status from this switch you are having an issue with and one of the working switches. The command should look like this Switch#Show VTP Status

Just because they are trunking and you allow all VLANS to traverse the trunk, that does not mean that the VLANS have to propigate the trunk

In addition to the show vtp status output, post the output from "show interface trunk" from both the 2950's involved.
