How do I setup multiple vlans in a single domain

Hi there,
I wan't to setup a network configuration where two floors are on a different VLAN and they must use the same AD, DHCP, DNS and gateway (the clients may not communicate between vlans). I use a W2K8 DC, several application servers, procurve 1810G switches and a Cisco RVS4000 as gateway. How do setup a configuration like this? Do I need extra devices? Which are recommended?

Your best solution would be three vlans then, one fore the AD DHCP etc.  and one for each client base.   Then you would create ACLs that prevent the clients from talking to eachother by applying the ACL to the respective vlans.  I am looking over the switch type you provided to see if it is a layer 3 switch and will handle these items.
Justin EllenbeckerIT DirectorCommented:
The 1810 G is not a layer 3 device, you will either need to replace it with a Layer 3 switch or you would have to place a router in each vlan so that the traffic can get from one vlan to the other.  In the procurve line you are looking at this series to accomplish what you need.

If yo uare looking at Cisco Switches I would recommend the 3750 and you will need IP Base to get the layer 3 support for your needs.

Thx for the tips. Would the procurve 2600 series also do the trick?

Justin EllenbeckerIT DirectorCommented:
From what i was reading it didn't look like the 2600 did layer 3 services but I am do not use them and can't give you a definite answer.  Your best bet would be to contact either the HP Pre-Sales line or the vendor you would be purchasing the equipment from.
