    CC3 should have no interaction with the actual hardware of the server - this will be handled by windows itself. So yes, it will handle it.

    On the CC3 issue, I'm not sure - there are a few mentions of it on the forums here, one person saying it required a few changes to hosts files but that's about it.

    How difficult is it to config Vlans on procurve switches. I have not done it before so where do I start?

    I'm going to be a dissenting voice on this one. I really can't see VLANs being the answer to your problems. We're running a procurve based network here and have a vlan over twice the size of your whole network with no problems and no excessive broadcast traffic.

    IMHO your first task is to get your servers connected at gigabit speed.

    If you're concerned about broadcast/arp traffic levels, install a sniffer (wireshark etc) on a pc and see what's on the wire. If there is really an excessive amount of broadcasts you need to track down where they're coming from and sort that out.

    None if this is to say that vlans aren't useful - they just aren't the way to solve your immediate problem.

    You will still be wasting a lot of bandwidth on broadcast traffic slowing your network!

    That depend on your definition of 'a lot' It's reasonably busy here at the moment and i'm seeing 0.1% broadcast packets on the links to our servers. Why would you expect to see anything more than a few arp packets and dhcp requests?
