In which VTP modes can you propagate VTP advertisements and create or delete local VLANs? (Choose two.)
You can propagate VTP advertisements and create or delete local VLANs on a switch when it is in server mode or transparent mode.
There are three modes in VTP: server, client, and transparent. The main differentiator among the three modes is whether a switch can create or delete VLANs. You can create local VLANs in server and transparent VTP modes. However, VLANs created on a switch in transparent mode apply only to that switch, and information about these VLANs is not promulgated throughout the VTP domain.
VTP server mode sends or forwards VTP advertisements, synchronizes VLAN configuration information with other switches, and saves the VLAN in NVRAM.
VTP transparent mode forwards VTP advertisements and saves the VLAN configuration in NVRAM. It does not synchronize VLAN configuration information. A switch in transparent mode can create, delete, and modify VLANs, but changes are not transmitted to other switches in the domain. Changes only affect the local switch.
VTP client mode sends or forwards VTP advertisements and synchronizes VLAN configuration information with other switches. It does not save VLAN information in NVRAM. In client mode, VTP clients only can receive VLAN information from VTP servers. A Catalyst switch can create, modify, and delete VLANs in server or transparent modes, but not in client mode.
VTP user mode and private mode do not exist.
