I'm planning to create VLAN in my company network (with about 300 network nodes). This will be on Port Based type  

(1 VLAN for Server Farm and 4 VLAN for Remote Buildings).

I dont have DHCP server
Currently all my PC have static IP
all my ip is
 172.16.XXX.XXX
255.255.0.0


I can't change any Server IP

Hi AymanDasa,
Correct me if i am wrong.
As I read your question, you want to have a new set of VLAN's with new IP-ranges to minimize broadcast. Only servers will keep IP's.
And you want these vlans to be able to communicate with each other.
The procurve 2800 is a L3-swith -capable of routing between vlans.
You do not mention if the switches in the drawing are existing, to be reconfigured or not in use yet.

Let us asume you make 5 new vlans with ID: 10,11,12,13 and 14 (leaving the Default_vlan 1 out of the equation for now) on the 2800 and start routing on this device.
config
vlan 1
name default_vlan1
IP ADRESS 10.10.10.10  255.255.0.0
untagged 4-7
exit
vlan 10
name server-VL
IP ADRESS 172.16.0.1 255.255.0.0
untagged 1,2,3
exit
vlan 11
name remote1-VL
IP ADRESS 172.17.0.1 255.255.0.0
tagged 4
exit
vlan 12
name remote2-VL
IP ADRESS 172.18.0.1 255.255.0.0
tagged 5
exit
vlan 13
name remote3-VL
IP ADRESS 172.19.0.1 255.255.0.0
tagged 6
exit
vlan 14
name remote4-VL
IP ADRESS 172.20.0.1 255.255.0.0
tagged 7
exit
ip routing
wite mem

Note: servers would then have a default gw. 172.16.0.1
PC's in vlan 11 should have IP's in 172.17.0.0-range , netmask 255.255.0.0 and dgw=172.17.0.1  and so on in the other vlans.
Servers should be connected to untagged vlan 10 -ports , like the ports 1-3 in above config.
Links to other sw. would have matching vlan configs on the connecting ports.
So if procurve 2600 in remote building 1 with vlan11 is connected on port 26 to procurve 2800 on port 4 , then both ports would be tagged vlan 11

Sample config for 2600:
config
vlan 1
name defalt_vlan1
ip adress 10.10.10.11  255.255.0.0
untagged 26
exit
vlan 11
name remote1-VL
untagged 1-25
tagged 26
exit
write mem

Let us know, if this was the info you was after.
