VLAN Tagging on Xenserver

Hi,

I have enabled vlan Tagging on the Xen server host in a standalone mode, but at the switch level when the connected port is tagged for the specific VLAN's it is not learning any MAC adress and xenhost server and VM's are not reachable.

If the VLAN tagging is disabled it is giving access to the xenhost and VM's

Is there anything needs to be done at switch level?

or did i miss out completely on the configuration.

When you enable VLAN tagging, you have to set the physical switch to be a trunk port

this is working after we have isolated the management interface from the actual VM's

Now we have management interface running on nic-0 which is not tagged at switch level and nic-1 is serving all the VM's and it is tagged at switch level
