I created a new port group attached to vSwitch1 with a VLAN ID of 4. I have a guest machine that I moved from VLAN 3 to this new port group. The guest machine can not talk to ANY computer on it's network although it can ping itself. I get a "destination unreachable" when I try to ping anything else. If I move the guest back to VLAN 3 and redo the static IP everything works fine.
I've got VMWare ESX Server v3.5 and an HP Procurve 2848 switch. I want to have multiple VLAN's on the ESX server. I have 3 NICS in a Link Aggregation Group with VLAN tagging enabled. All servers virtual and physical on VLAN 3 can talk to each other and VLAN 2 no problemo. The new VLAN 4 simply does not work! The only other device on VLAN 4 is my router. I can ping that router from any machine virtual or physical EXCEPT from the machine in this new port group (VLAN4)
I ran "esxcfg-vswitch -l" and everything looked perfect. I've rebooted the host to no avail.
Success! A Link Aggregration Group (LAG) (HP calls them trunks) on a procurve switch must be added to every VLAN for which it will receive traffic despite the fact that the ports are tagged for any given
