Configure VLAN trunking on Dell Powerconnect 6224 Switch

We have 2 sites (Site A & Site B).
At each site there is an ISCSI VLAN which is meant for SAN replication between the 2 sites (Equallogic SAN Groups).
The ISCSI VLANs are configured correctly at each site.
Site A - VLAN ID 11
Site B - VLAN ID 12

The ISCSI VLANs are managed by Powerconnect 6224's.

We now have a dedicated point to point link in place between the 2 sites. I have connected the uplink cable for the link between the 2 sites into 1 port on each switch.

I have been advised by the link provider that I need configure the port where the uplink cable is connected on the 6224 at site A (VLAN ID 11) to Trunk VLAN ID 12.

Does this sound correct and How do you do this in the web GUI?

If you need to get multiple VLANs across the link you just configure the port on each switch for tagging for each VLAN that will be going over it.

Understood.
How do I do that?

From the Web Interface:
 Switching > VLAN > Membership. To create VLANs and specify port participation.
 Switching > VLAN > Port Settings. To specify the PVID and mode for the port.

Once you have the VLANs configured you click on the port in the "static" row till it gets to "T" for tagged on the port that is in multiple VLANs. Leave it "U" for untagged on the regular device ports.

Hello, this part is already in place. VLAN's already present and the appropriate ports are tagged.

However I still don't seem to be able to communicate with the local gateway from either the iSCSI (VLAN) switch or any of the devices attached to it on the same VLAN.

I can't tell from the info provided but you need ip routing turned on globally for the switch doing the routing and you need each vlan interface to have routing turned on and be in a separate subnet.

Normally the routing is done by one switch at the core of the network where all the VLANs collapse to. it is the gateway for each VLAN's devices.

Here are examples of how to do that from the GUI:
Routing > IP > Configuration. To enable routing for the switch.
Routing > IP > Interface Configuration. To enable routing for the VLANs and configure
their IP addresses and subnet masks.

And here are the routing commands from CLI:
console#configure
console(config)#interface vlan 10
console(config-if-vlan10)#routing
console(config-if-vlan10)#ip address 192.150.3.1 255.255.255.0
console(config-if-vlan10)#exit
console#configure
console(config)#interface vlan 20
console(config-if-vlan20)#routing
console(config-if-vlan20)#ip address 192.150.4.1 255.255.255.0
console(config-if-vlan20)#exit

console(config)#ip routing
