Can i configure multiple VLAN on S3500 switch port? which mean every single switch port can belong to multiple VLAN. So network administrator no need to worry about which port is which VLAN and for which user. Because certain VLAN for certain user, for example: VLAN 31 for Guest, VLAN 32 for Admin Department, VLAN 33 for HR Department. Based on user authentication to differentiate the user VLAN.

What you can do is configure a default VLAN on each port, and then using AAA-Profiles use VLANs within 'roles' to ensure that when one of the groups you identify below authenticates that they inherit (aka. Derive) the desired VLAN you would like them to have.
In that way the S3500 ports can 'dynamically' assign VLAN based upon the device/user that is plugged in at any specific time... a great simplification over existing LAN switch fixed VLAN configurations.

You will want to put the S3500 ports into a mode called "tunneled node". That way, the controller handles all wired ports, as if they were "wireless users"
