VLAN based on MAC address

Has anyone created a VLAN based on MAC address using Cisco switches? What I am trying to accomplish is to have mobile video conference equipment placed into a special VLAN no matter what port it's connected to. I have read some about dynamic VLAN's and VMSP. I do not want to have a switch running CatOS.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is do-able, but ideally you would need to implement 802.1X on the switches, have a TACACS+ or Radius server in the background, and the switches would need to be able to dynamically configure VLANS (Cisco). Once you have all this in place you can configure on the Radius server the VLAN that a particular MAC address should be in, if there is no VLAN configured the switch should be configured to place them in a “default” VLAN of your choice. You could also go back to old-school method (outdated) of VMPS (plain text file) on a TFTP server. This method will work but is not easily scalable and has a high administrative overhead.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,

CATMan.
