I am a complete beginner to networking and was wondering if there was anybody out there that could help setup a vlan using Sonicwall Pro 3060 connected to a HP ProCurve 1800 24g managed switch.
The secnario is this. I have a DELL 2900 III server with an Intel pro 1000 pt Quad Port adapter and on this server I have installed ESX Server 3.5. On the esx server I have Installed a SBS 2008 virtual machine which I want to be on a different subnet.
The two on board nics of the server are connected to ports 1 and 2 of the HP ProCurve switch respectively.
Port 3 of the switch is connected to the port 1 of the quad port adapter.
Port 24 of the switch is connected to the x3 port of the sonicwall
The x3 interface is on a subnet 10.0.0.254, the Esx Server Service Console is on 10.0.0.1 and the switch's ip address is 10.0.0.253
I have created a subinterface on x3 with a subnet of 10.0.1.254, and have assigned the sbs 2008 virtual machine with an ip address of 10.0.1.10, I have assigned a vlan id of 5 to this sub interface.
On the Esx Server I have created a seperate vswitch for the SBS 2008 vm and have given it a vlan id 5
On the switch I have created vlan with an id of 5 and assigned ports 3 and 24 to this vlan. and on the port configuration I have set port 3 to be tagged to vlan 5
On the sonicwall diagnostics I try to ping 10.0.1.10 but I get no response.
Armed with all this information is there anybofy outhere that can help me successfully set this scenario up so the my vm can access the internet and is seggragated from the other sub nets.
I would be most grateful for some assitance.
Thank you very much in advance
