We have 2 Hyperv 2012 hosts in failover cluster.  On each server 2NIC are teamed and is used for VM traffic. At the moment I have VMs on the HyperVhost on VLAN 500. I want to have VMs on VLAN 200.
So on the cisco switch. I have made the 4VM Ports( 2 from each server) as Trunk Ports.
What do I need to do on the HyperV host so that  I can have VMs on VLAN 200. Below is  port configuration of one switch ports

at present you have set a default vlan (access VLAN) of 500, so all traffic which arrive on the switch port is on 500.

if you want to use VLANs 200 and 500 simultaneously on the switch port, you will need to use 802.1Q Tags.


switchport trunk encapsulation dot1q
 switchport trunk allowed vlan 200,500
 switchport mode trunk

you can still keep the default in place, but you will then need to start tagging traffic from the Server, by creating new "virtual networks" with the VLAN Tag of 200 and 500.
