HP L3 Switch, SHoretel Voip and QOS/Prioritisation best practices

Last Modified: 2014-11-26
Im stuck on how best to achieve a reliable qos on our voice network.

HQ Overview:
Cisco Router (managed)
Cisco ASA 5505 (managed)
HP 2910al Poe L3 Switch (ours) - vlan1 - data & vlan20 - voice,            /         2x HP 1910s - vlan1 only
ingate siparator                                                                                       /           printers/computers
Shoretel kit, switches, director, etc..

My issue now is with regard to quality, so looking at deploying QOS.  I have added a prioritisation rule but not sure if the answer..
The phones are configured: 802.1q, tagging on, vlanid20.
Should i tag all vlan20 ports?  Currently all are untagged.  Phone direct in switch, not daisy chained.
Should i enabled voice on the vlan20 or is the rule sufficient?
vlan1 or primary, correct?

The current switch L3 config:
