Options for a GVRP-aware port receiving advertisements

  • If there is not already a static VLAN with the advertised VID on the receiving port, such a port can dynamically create the VLAN and become a member.

  • If the switch already has a static VLAN assignment with the same VID as in the advertisement, and the port is configured to Auto for that VLAN, then the port will dynamically join the VLAN and begin moving that VLAN's traffic.

  • Ignore the advertisement for that VID.

  • Not participate in that VLAN.
