Hi Friend,


AFAIK technology is never end of life or support till the time the product on which you are using has a valid support and not end of life or support.

Hi Gopinath,


The VMPS feature is no longer supported in 12.2SX code.


http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/lan/cat6000/122sx/ol_4164.htm#wp25624


The alternative as I see it would be to enable 802.1x authentication on the switch and authenticate users or machines against a RADIUS server. From there, you can perform vlan ssignment.


Here is the configuration guide for 802.1x on this platform:
