Hi all,

I have a problem/question, I have a ESXi 5.1 stanalone server 13 VM running, 1 uplink for managment network, 1 uplink for VLAN 9 and another uplink linked to a pyshical switch with a trunk to VLAN 1, 9, and 12, i have a Windows 2000 server connected to a Virtual Switch with an uplink to VLAN 9 and when I change the settings for network adapter to VLAN trunked i got no ping, i followed this:

http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&docTypeID=DT_KB_1_1&externalId=1004252

I´ve change the VLAN ID to 4095, and followed the steps with no luck

so you have a trunk configured on a single NIC, tagged with 1,9 and 12?

have you then created the virtual machine portgroup with the tag?

why not combine the two nics in a trunk, and tag the vlans?

yes I have a Virtual switch pointing to the trunked nic ( 1, 9, 12 ), exactly, and inside the VMware port group this way:

To set a standard vSwitch portgroup to trunk mode:

Edit host networking via the Virtual infrastructure Client.
Click Host > Configuration > Networking > vSwitch > Properties.
Click Ports > Portgroup > Edit.
Click the General tab.
Set the VLAN ID to 4095

may I have something else inside the VM?

Other workarround would be create a port group for each VLAN inside de Virtual switch

4095 All is a special VLAN for VMware usage.

Virtual Machine Portgroup for each VLAN is how it's supposed to be setup.

Ok then, I will define at the port group level, and at the vSwitch level will left by default, as your picture

thanks
