Central VLAN Configuration
Can anybody tell me how I could go about configuring VLANs for a HP Procurve network but in a centralized way?
After doing a bit of research I have found that on Cisco devices I can use Cisco's proprietary protocol called "VLAN Trunking Protocol". This is effectively a central database where I can configure all my VLANS which all the devices on the network refer to.
I was hoping that there was a similar feature on Procurve kit; I'd rather not go round each switch/router and configure my VLANS individually .
Lastly, for anybody else out there: I found the following resource very helpful when configuring this on Cisco kit: InformIT: VLANs and Trunking > VLAN Trunking Protocol
If anybody has any ideas I would most appreciate it,

HP Procurve Manager Plus (see ProCurve Manager Plus 2.3 Software overview - HP Small & Medium Business products ) can be used to do this easily but it isn't cheap!
Most Procurves also have 'GARP VLAN Registration Protocol' which I believe is another way to assign VLANs.
