We have a small number of vlans (under 5) and according to Cisco's small business architecture documentation it is recommended to set VTP to transparent mode. Transparent mode doesn't send VTP updates to other switches which is basically the same effective outcome that comes default on new switches which is server mode with a null domain. Can someone clarify for me why I would want to choose transparent over the server/null domain setup when it seems to me that the difference is a zero sum calculation? Thanks.
