I ma trying to get a DMZ up and running using ESX 3.5. No matter what I try the VM can not ping the gateway. I have 8 NIC's per ESX host. 2 are being used for Service Console 1, 4 are dedicated the VM network that has 3 VM Networks (internal / DMZ / Public) and 2 for Service Consoe 2 / VMkernal. I added a VlanID of 225 to the DMZ virtual network and followed a guide on setting up the port on the switch that connects to the DMZ interface of the ASA. I creaded a vlan for this port on the physical switch 225 and enabled trunking dot1q and connected the vlan to the port.

I also enabled in the inside interface of the ASA to the switch to use trunking dot1q and assigned it vlan 201. Once that happed I lost all communication, as I thought the trunking would allow other vlan to pass thru from the switch. I am at a total loss, any guiedence would be greatly appreciated.
