How to assign a VLAN from a list of vlans to users based on their roles?

How to assign a VLAN from a list of vlans to users based on their roles? For instance, faculty get assigned ip addresses from a pool while students get assigned from different pool. Also the DHCP is a windows 2012 sever. We use the captive portal to authenticate users; the authentication servers are ldap. We use aruba 7020 controller. Is this possible?

Re: How to assign a VLAN from a list of vlans to users based on their roles?

As you are using captive portal, in which case the user already has an ip address, it is difficult to switch the vlan and make the devices re-ip.

 

Suggest you use dot1x authentication method so that the vlan is assigned before the device does a dhcp.
