#version 8.4(6)

#system
set system name  CVP-6k

#!
#vtp
set vtp domain VSE
set vtp version 2

#port channel
set port channel 4/1-6 301
set port channel 3/13-14 319

#module 3 : 48-port 10/100/1000BaseT Ethernet
set vlan 100  3/1-2,3/4-14,3/16

### Above command will configurere the native VLAN 100 to the port 3/13 & 3/14

## VLAN 100 is the ESXi management VLAN

## VLAN 433 is the CVP CUCM VLAN

set port name       3/13 CVP-C210-M1 Eth0
set port name       3/14 CVP-C210-M1 Eth1

set trunk 3/13 on dot1q 1-4094
set trunk 3/14 on dot1q 1-4094

set spantree portfast    3/13-14 disable

# disable spantress portfast as best practice

### Best Practice is to have trunk ON command instead of Auto and desirable states. Because they might not work. So pick trunk ON command

set port channel 3/13-14 mode on

---------- END CONFIG----------

Best Practice Verify Trunk is working

This is important that the port status should be trunking otherwise something is wrong

CVP-6k> (enable) sh trunk
* - indicates vtp domain mismatch
# - indicates dot1q-all-tagged enabled on the port
$ - indicates non-default dot1q-ethertype value
Port      Mode         Encapsulation  Status        Native vlan
--------  -----------  -------------  ------------  -----------
1/3      auto         n-dot1q        trunking      100
3/3      on           dot1q          trunking      1
3/13     on           dot1q          trunking      100
3/14     on           dot1q          trunking      100
4/1      nonegotiate  dot1q          trunking      1
4/2      nonegotiate  dot1q          trunking      1
4/3      nonegotiate  dot1q          trunking      1

Verify MAC Address learned via the port channel
