We currently have installed a Draytek Vigor 2952, 9x Ruckus ICX 7150 and a Ruckus ZD1200 with 9 Ruckus R510 access points.

The Sonos units are in VLAN9 with the Crestron touch panels and we're trying to get the Sonos units to play from VLAN5 which is the "Owner" VLAN. The VLANS are set up and working just fine, the only problem we have is with Sonos. Any ideas or pointers why can't we see the Sonos units from VLAN5 ?

Thank you,

Not sure for Sonos but you probably need to enable some form.of mdns proxy as otherwise the Sonos app will never find the Sonos devices. Also,.watch out that Sonos builds their own wifi mesh and run stp on all their interfaces so that might be interfering as well

You would need to enable inter vlan routing in order to get this working I guess. Both type of devices are in different IP networks/broadcast domains. Sonos uses ssdp (part of UPnP) for discovery. There are projects to relay the multicast traffic from one VLAN to other VLANs.
