Dynamic vlan

I am thinking of configuring a dynamic vlan for some of the devices on our LAN. Can you share with me your experience with dynamic vlans? Thank you.

Re: Dynamic vlan

you should use dynamic vlans, aka VMPS when you require or want specific MAC addresses to be able to connect to the switch; and when you don't want unknown MAC addresses connecting to the switch.

if you have no need to monitor/maintain what MAC addresses connect to your switch, then VMPS will not be required and will only provide additional administration overhead.

if you do need/want VMPS, please see this link for VMPS configuration and design:

Re: Dynamic vlan

Another way to configure this is through 802.1x authentication and radius server.

Recently I configure this using Microsoft IAS, but you can do this with Cisco ACS too.
