Possibly in the summer I'm going to look at purchasing a HP ProCurve 5412zl switch as our core switch. With that I'm interested in configuring VLANs. I've been thinking about this and have come up with a possible setup - I'm wondering what people think who have setup VLAN's in the past
1 - Default VLAN (limited access - enough to add computers onto the domain basically)
2 - VLAN for authenticated domain stations via LAN via 802.1x (i.e. added to our AD)
3 - VLAN for authenticated domain stations via Wireless
4 - VLAN for 3rd party computers (i.e. students laptops for example) to have limited access to the domain (web browsing, internal vle etc and my docs)
5 - VLAN for servers
6 - VLAN for management consoles (switches, WAP's etc)
7 - VLAN for Printers and other network peripherals
Then in the future VLAN's specifically for telephony, video systems etc
Then with our wireless network (for which I may purchase the procurve wireless management module) to have three SSIDS
1 - SSID for authenticated domain computers (802.1x)
2 - SSID For authenticated computers (for school machines that don't support 802.1x - i.e. our PDA's etc)
3 - SSID for Open Access (but secure encyption) to the VLAN network for 3rd party machines.
You might also want to think about HVAC and Access Control systems.
