VMPS in 640-802

Hi all,

I am currently studying for a Network+ exam, to give me a better grounding for re-taking my CCNA next month. In the Network+ course book there is a small piece on VMPS / Dynamic VLANs. I do not recall seeing this in the recent CCNA topics. Has Dynamic VLANs been removed from the 640-802 exam topics?

    I've only come across it in 6500 series Cisco gear so I think it could be something beyond CCNA level knowledge. I also don't recall going over it for the N+ exam although I did a different version to what you are currently studying.

    Thanks TehToG. I don't think its in the N+ exam, it was just a small paragraph in the book that took me by surprise.

    It's one of those things that it's good to be aware of though. It's a simple enough concept but don't expect to go into any depth. It could be a wrong answer on the multiple choice section of the CCNA so if you're unsure it could help you narrow the right answer.

    VMPS isn't actually tested in any of the exams other than knowing its a server which allows a switch to query what VLAN it should assign to a port when a host connects to it. As far as I can tell, the SWITCH (CCNP) exam would ask you no more than this.

    Plus, 802.1x is what the really cool kids do to dynamically assign VLANs to ports!
