VLAN membership Policy Server

I'm interested in implementing VMPS on our network. This is one of the few VLAN policy servers that will work with our phones. My question is this: Our core switches are 6506's and according to cisco, they don't have the ability to be the server for VMPS. Is this true? or is it a software feature that I am lacking in the switch? I have been told that the catalyst 5000 supports it but we don't have one and don't plan to buy one. Didn't the 6500 series replace the 5000?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Re: VLAN membership Policy Server

Catalyst 6000 family switches support VMPS client only. You must have a Catalyst 5000 family switch as the VMPS server to configure dynamic port VLAN membership. VMPS server configuration is included in this chapter as a convenience; all VMPS server configuration must be performed on the Catalyst 5000 family switch

HTH, rate if it does

Please read:

You need a TFTP server in order to order the VMPS database.
