This error message is received when the supervisor module fails to create VLAN's
This condtion can occur when there is a VTP configuration issue.
The VLAN configuration is stored in the vlan.dat file. The vlan.dat file resides in nonvolatile memory. When the Supervisor module is replaced, vlan.dat is empty (0). On bootup, the switch compares the VTP domain name and VTP mode in the startup configuration file and the vlan.dat file. If the values do not match, the switch uses the configuration in the vlan.dat file. To perform a complete backup of your configuration, the vlan.dat file must be included in the backup along with the configuration.
VTP is a Layer 2 messaging protocol. VTP manages the addition, deletion, and rename of VLANs on a network-wide basis in order to maintain VLAN configuration consistency. VTP minimizes misconfigurations and configuration inconsistencies that can result in a number of problems. The problems include duplicate VLAN names, incorrect VLAN-type specifications, and security violations.
By default, the switch is in VTP server mode and is in the no-management domain state. These default settings change when the switch receives an advertisement for a domain over a trunk link or when a management domain is configured.
