Configure all ports located on other switches from one switch

Introduction

If VLANs are configured on one switch (Switch1) and this switch is subsequently connected to another switch (Switch2) using a port channel, the VLANs configured on Switch1 are visible as well if the console cable is plugged to Switch2. However, the ports assigned to VLANs by Switch1 are not visible, while viewing the configuration of Switch2.

Question

Is it possible to view the configuration of the ports of all switches in the network by plugging the console cable to one switch like this is the case for VLANs?

Answers

No it isn't. The reason why you can see VLANs on both switches is VTP (VLAN Trunk Protocol)

Is it possible to view the configuration of the ports of all switches in the network by plugging the console cable to one switch

As they are independent, free-standing switches, No. If they were in a stack or cluster, then the answer most likely would be yes -- they'd all appear as one switch.
