I am having problems with an embedded cisco switch. It came with an IBM blade server. My server admin should be able to configure mutliple vlans on each blade instance. I can assign each blade to a particular vlan, but then the whole blade becomes member of that vlan. He keeps telling me I need to trunk my ports. I turn trunking on and then he can't get to his VM's. He has multiple VM's per blade. I only have 14 ports to work with. Each port on the embedded switch (it's virtual, it only has 4 physical ports) is in vlan200. He wants one vm to be in vlan200 and one in vlan11...etc etc. Does anyone have a good tech reference? Thanks
It looks good , I don't think we used portfast on the links , no reason it would need it . Also if you are trunking and using transparent mode just verify you have created your layer 2 vlans , don't see them in the config . Verify how you want vtp setup , transparent or cleint etc ... The rest looks good , myself I would manually prune off any unneeded vlans off your etherchanneled uplinks .
