How do i Setup QoS on an HP Procurve Switch for an Avaya IP Phone System?

Hi, we are setting up a new Avaya IP phone system with a HP Procurve Switch and i need to setup QoS and PoE on the HP Procurve Switch. I have never done this before and i need some specific instructions.
In this switch there is no other LAN devices connected. All this will have is a connection to the Phone system and all the phones and a voice mail server. How do i do this?
Thanks in advance.

Any Expert on this? Need to set it up today
Lets assume your voice vlan is VLAN100

Via CLI -
Procurve switch# conf t
Procurve switch(config)# vlan100
qos priority 6

That should get you started. If you have no vlans, use vlan1.

You can also do this via the web interface, browse to the IP address of your switch, then go into the configuration tab, and then select quality of service. Select VLAN Priority, and then on the right side, select the VLAN and then at the bottom select the priority level you require (should be 6 for voip).

thanks klinkeye
also do i need to do anything with DSCP policy Setting?
I strongly believe you shoud have VLANs but if this switch is dedicated to VoIP then I suppose you can get away with it.  

DSCP is handled at the Layer 3 level, aka your router so nothing on the switch setup is needed.
Are you statically setting your phones?  Where is the DHCP coming from?
Is this switch connected to your other switches?  

Example with VLAN 1 = data vlan and vlan 2 = voice

vlan 1
   name "DATA_VLAN"
   tagged 1-50
   qos priority 1
   ip address   <-- IP of switch itself for management on VLAN 1
vlan 2
   name "VOICE"
   untagged 1-49  <-- says everything is in VLAN 2 except uplink
   qos priority 7
   tagged 50
   no ip address

so in my scenario above port 49 goes to the Avaya switch
port 48 goes to the voice mail server (which will only live on VLAN 2)
and port 50 uplinks to your main switches otherwise how will you manage it?
