Auto VLAN Assignment with DHCP
Posted on 2012-08-31
I am configuring a new Cisco 2960 switch stack. I would like this switch stack to support 3 different VLANs. One for voice, one for video and one for data.
Each workstation cubicle connected to this switch stack will have 3 or 4 network jacks and any one jack could have a PC, Phone, or video device connected to it.
What I would like to do is setup the switch stack so that when a device is connected to one of the ports it will request a DHCP address. I would like to have the DHCP response to the device also indicate what VLAN they become a member of.
The VOIP phone is a Cisco Phone and the PC will be an IBM desktop or laptop and the video device could vary and the DHCP server is a Microsoft DHCP 2008 server.
Are there any DHCP options that can be returned to help accomplish this or is this more of a switch configuration task?
