Sonos (wired) with separate VLAN

    I just replaced my existing network infrastructure with Aruba Instant On components:

    - AP11D
    • - AP11
    • - 1930 48 Port Switch
    • - 1930 8 Port PoE Switch
    I setup the system in Router mode using the AP11D.
    So far the setup was quite easy and worked immediately.
    But then I created a separate VLAN for my Sonos components because my idea was to separate all the different components into separate networks (home, office, IoT, Sonos,...)

    The Sonos components are mostly connected via Ethernet cable. The rest used the proprietary sonosnet to connect.
    When I setup this network I also activated shared services. It showed me immediately the sonos devices as components and I tried to activate them for my home network. Unfortunately the Sonos app doesn't recognize anything...
    I tried it several times.

    I already saw that there are some Sonos threads but they are already a little bit older.
    I am wondering if it should work now with recent firmware 2.2 or if Sonos can't be separated into a different VLAN.

    It would be great if someone can at least tell me if I did something wrong or if it doesn't work at all.

    Thanks in advance
