Hoping someone can answer my question about VMPS. I recently configured a Cat4000 to act as my VMPS server. Things worked initially, until I had to make modification to the text file that VMPS is pulling from. I manually uploaded the text file back onto the 4000 by issuing the commands
set vmps state disable
set vmps state enable
And continue to do so anytime I have to update the text file. I ran into an issue this morning though, when I realized that there were about 14 printers that fell offline, by defaulting to the fallback vlan, and not that of their respective vlans that they were supposed to be in. A manual reboot of each printer fixed the situation.
What I suspect might have happened is while I was disabling/re-enabling VMPS, the VQP must have attempted a reconfirm, and it failed.
I guess my question is, is there a way to reconfirm, or download changes you make to the text file, without disabling the service, and can this be automated in anyway?
I know the VMPS is an outdated technology, and am planning to move to 802.1x, but we are running into issues about cross platform EAP support since we have a mixed platform network. I have OS X, Windows, Ubuntu, and Red Hat desktops boxes that all need a simple solution for dynamic vlan assignment.
For step-by-step instructions on how to configure a Cisco Catalyst switch as a VLAN Management Policy Server (VMPS), refer to the Configure VMPS section of Configuring Dynamic Port VLAN Membership with VMPS.
