I've got a scenario where the client does not wish to use Cisco switches for his Cisco IP phones (79xx) but wishes to run these from his HP Procurve LAN.
I'm posting this to see whether anyone has had any issues with this scenario, specifically in the case of trunking VLANs to the phones.
So my intention is to set up HP switch ports to be dot1Q trunks, providing the native VLAN for the data, and a tagged dot1Q vlan for voice. According to Cisco documentation, the phones will select the tagged VLAN and will extend only the native VLAN out the back of the phone for data connections to PCs.
Does anyone see a reason why this will not work? My question is exactly how does the phone know to select the dot1Q tagged VLAN? I guess it's easy if there are no other tagged VLANs.
Anyone done this recently?
