Configure GVRP Settings on a Switch
Adjacent Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN)-aware devices can exchange VLAN information with each other with the use of the Generic VLAN Registration Protocol (GVRP). GVRP is based on the Generic Attribute Registration Protocol (GARP) and propagates VLAN information throughout a bridged network. When GVRP is activated, it transmits and receives GARP Packet Data Units (GPDUs). This allows you to configure a VLAN on one switch and then propagate its information across the network, instead of the previously required creation of the VLAN on each switch in the network.
This article provides instructions on how to configure GVRP settings on the switch.
Note: Since GVRP requires support for tagging, the port must be configured in Trunk or General mode. To learn how to configure a port on an Sx300 or Sx500 switch to be a Trunk or General Mode, click here. If you have an Sx350, SG350X, or Sx550X switch, click here.
1.4.7.06 — Sx300, Sx500
2.2.8.04 — Sx250, Sx350, SG350X, Sx550X
Configure GVRP Settings
Step 1. Log in to the web-based utility of your switch then choose Advanced in the Display Mode drop-down list.
Note: The available menu options may vary depending on the device model. In this example, SG350X-48MP is used.
Note: If you have an Sx300 or Sx500 Series switch, skip to Step 2.
