    Hi all,

    all documents seen about the subject say that environments developed were done using Cisco 5000 or
    higher as VMPS server. I tried Open VMPS for testing but I would like to put the "MAC addresses -
    VLAN" database inside a Cisco device.
    Does any body of you know whether also the 4006 can act as server maybe running a specific version
    of CatOS or higher?

    "You cannot configure a Catalyst 4000 family switch as a VMPS server."
    I don't know if this applies ot 4500 or not.

  3. Which is odd, because you can make a cat2948G into a VMPS server,
    which is a fixed config "4000" series device. IIRC, some of the other
    fixed config "4000" series devices could also do it.

    But as far as I know, there is no IOS based vmps server code, so the
    4500 is out. Your choices are really a 5000 or like I said, a cat2948G.

    Clearly, its not very well supported by Cisco, and pretty much out of
    the view of mainstream.
