How to setup a VLAN for iscsi EMC SAN

Could someone help me setup a Hp Procurve 2824 switch with VLAN for a ISCSI EMC SAN?

24 ports- ports 1-6 will be for iscsi vlan and ports 7-24 will be for normal network traffic.

Do I need jumbo frames and Spanning tree?

Should I use nothing but CLI or can I use web interface.

Any help would be appreciated.

I prefer the CLI, and it's easier to actually post commands than to post a youtube video...

The vlan config would be something like this:
vlan 29 
   name "iscsi" 
   untagged 1-6
vlan 31 
   name "data" 
   untagged 7-24

Open in new window

Jumbo is a good idea for iSCSI, also you can disable STP to improve convergence, but be extra careful with loop avoidance in your cabling.
