VMPS Server

What platform can I use for my VMPS server? I have an old 4006, and I'm getting a new 6500. Can either of these be VMPS servers? I was reading documentation on the 6000 series, and it claimed, "You must have a Catalyst 5000 family switch as the VMPS server to configure dynamic port VLAN membership. all VMPS server configuration must be performed on the Catalyst 5000 family switch." But I've seen another forum conversation where they were using 3750s. Will my 6500 work? Or will I have to get something new?

Re: VMPS Server

I really do not see any problem in making 6500 a VMPS server if it is running in hybrid mode.

For your reference following are the commands you can use

set vmps server 10.10.10.10 primary

set vmps server retry 7

set vmps downloadserver 10.10.20.20 DATABASE_FILE.db

set vmps tftpserver ipaddr

set vmps state enable

Here 10.10.10.10 will be your switch address and 10.10.20.20 will be address of TFTP server where the database file is located.

Just do not forget to give set vmps enable command.
