Your switch is a VTP client? VLAN 73 are created on the server?
If the switch is in Server or Transparent mode you need to create the interface VLAN and the Layer2 VLAN in orden to properly function.
switch(config)#name Adm-VLAN (per example)
ok, I gave vlan 73 a name and now when I do show vlan it shows up and is active. We don't use VTP because were not all cisco shop. Not sure if you read all the post but this switch is hooked into a HP switch. I still cannot ping it or from it. I am thinking it has to do with cisco to HP.
I think you have a trunk config issue on the HP side. I would check to see if vlan 73 is allowed on the trunk on the HP side . On your cisco side you are allowing all vlans so you don't have a restriction there.
Try adding this:
switch(config-if)#switchport trunk native-vlan 73
After this try the command show inter trunk and you can see the status of your trunk port, the encapsulation mode and the native vlan.
ok, I made that change and I can see the encapsulation 802.1q and stauts is trunking and the native vlan is 73. sill cannot ping it or ping from switch.
The uplink port to the Cisco switch in the HP switch is in trunk mode and function properly?
Maybe you can configure both ports in access mode, not trunk, on VLAN 73.
Ok, I got it working. We implemented port security and I forgot to take out the port that the switch is plugged into. Thanks for the responses I did learn some other things though.
