[dec]/[dec]

Explanation    This message indicates that VTP does not receive the request sent by GVRP because the VTP queue is full or the VTP task is not running. [dec]/[dec] is the module number/port number.

Recommended Action    Contact your technical support representative.

Error Message    GVRP-3-LOSTVLANEVT: vlan creation/deletion event lost for vlan [dec]

The error can also occur when GVRP wants to delete a VLAN and fails to notify VTP about the deletion. The problem occurs when the VTP message queue is full. [dec] is the new VLAN number.

Recommended Action    Reinitialize the VTP configuration by toggling between VTP server mode and transparent mode. If the problem persists, you might need to reset or power cycle the switch.

Error Message    GVRP-3-RECVNONGVRPTRUNK: drop GVRP PDU received on non-GVRP port
