VLANs and VMWare sessions

Unanswered Question
Oct 10th, 2008

I have vmware sessions that are on different subnets:

They both run on VMWare ESX. I'm creating a VLAN125 and an SVI with a interface.

If I trunk the port, won't the tags coming through the VMWare server be tagged as VLAN1 unless I make it an access port?

And if I made it an access port, I won't be able to see the servers, correct?

Do I need to trunk the port for VLAN125 and VLAN128 (will create later), and then do something in VMWare in order to be able to get it to work? (I know this may be more of a vmware question.)



I have this problem too.

i knew at VMWare, there is a setting make the interface as a trunk interface, so the interface can recognize 802.1q packet, at VM server, set each member server belong to properly vlan(125,or 128);

then the switch port should be set to trunk

#switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q

#switchport trunk allowed vlan 125,128
