How to configure 2910 iSCSI Switches

I have two 2910al-24 Procurves that are going to be used for iSCSI

Call them Switch1 and Switch2
The iSCSI network is 10.8.200.0/24
The LAN is 10.8.0.0/24

On Switch 1 -
Ports 1 - 22 are iSCSI ports
Port 23 is a cross-over to Switch 2
Port 24 is unused

On Switch 2 -
Ports 1-18, 20-22 are iSCSI ports
Port 19 goes to the LAN switch
Port 23 is a cross-over to Switch 1
Port 24 is unused


I would like to setup a VLAN so that I can keep the switches connected to the LAN (to manage them) but I do not want the iSCSI traffic mixed with the LAN traffic.  


Two Questions:

What should I type to put port 19 onto a seperate VLAN that can access only the management interfaces on Switches 1 and 2?

Should I plug another cable from Switch 1 into the LAN?

Thank you so much - this was perfect.

For anyone in a similar situation - I had to do Switch 2 first (if configuring via network and not console) so I didn't lose connection.  I initially did sw01 first and lost my connection, but then logged in and did SW02 - once that config was up the connection to SW01 came back and I finished the config.

Thanks again!!
