I have a deployment with X460-G2 as Distribution switches and X440-G2 as Edge switches, I tried to use the MVRP to propagate Vlans from the X460-G2 to the X440-G2, the vlans are propagated but I couldn't use these vlans on the x440G2, any body have a solution?

I believe you need to actually create the VLAN on the access switch to add it to a user port. It has been a while since I tested MVRP but I am fairly sure that is how it worked in my lab.

If you could provide your code version someone might have more current information.

MVRP does create VLAN on the switch dynamically.

For vlan assignment to access port you need static vlan.

MVRP does help you on distribution switches. On access switches or if you need to route the vlan, you need to define vlan statically. (For example by Extreme Management)
