Setup HP 2920 L3 ports for tagged voice and untagged computer


My goal is to setup a network of VOIP telephones (via a tagged vlan / qos etc) and PCs with one patch link per user. Therefore, PCs will be connected via the handsets.

HP L3 device: HP 2920-48G Switch (J9728A)
Handset: Polycom SoundPoint IP450

Unfamiliar with the cisco commands but here is a high level:
phone/workstation combo ports
-setup a voice vlan make it tagged
 -setup a data vlan, make it untagged
- set the pvid (default for untagged packets, whatever cisco calls it) to data vlan
- set the phones to use voice vlan and pass through whatever

the computer doesn't need to know anything about any vlans, it just works.

Many thanks in advance

I have included a sampling of our hp2920 config (WB_15_15_0008):

vlan 222
   name "DATA-Cisco-Servers"
   untagged 1-5
   tagged 21-24
   no ip address
   ip igmp
vlan 170
   name "Data-Employee-Offices"
   untagged 6-20
   tagged 21-24
   no ip address
vlan 191
   name "VOICE-Offices"
   tagged 1-24
   no ip address
   ip igmp

This draft configuration is all I can offer you.  Maybe it will help once you read up on various other posts.
We have a 5406zl upstream from the 2920s.  We use Cisco-IP phones NOT polycom.

Your config looks correct, is it not working?

Sorry, still waking up, I misunderstood the last post as a author comment.  The above config looks somewhat correct but as a more proper example:

vlan 1
 name "Management"
vlan 2
 name "Data"
 untagged 1-52
vlan 3
 name "Voice"
 tagged 1-52

Open in new window

Cisco, Polycom, etc phones don't matter, as long as they support "LLDP-MED" they will get the proper voice vlan.

This will give you a Data VLAN of "2" and a voice VLAN of "3".  I am tagging ports 1-52 because on the 2920 series, I believe it presents the SFP slots as a separate interface (49-52).

If you need any other tweaks, let me know.
