Hyper-v 2012 - trunk with 3 VLAN's

Hello

I should configure 3 vSwitches in Hyper-V.  I'm able to define the VLAN inside a VM directly.
Bud instead of giving each Vm a VLAN Id I would like create 3 vSwitche with the VLAN ID. So I do only need to assign the Switch to the VM. So I can avoid to assign individually to each VM (we have 70 VM's) the VLAN.

Has anyone a solution or an idea?

Thanks for any help

That isn't really how hyper-v networking works, and isn't terribly scalable. But I suppose as a workaround (not one I'd recommend), you could use a smart switch and set an untagged VLAN ID to each port that connects to the physical NICs on each virtual switch. Since the v-switches are isolated by Hyper-v a d the upstream ports will be isolated by the physical switch  and the use of port-based VLANs, you'd get the same net effect.

How many network adapters you have on physical hyper-v server ?

I assume that you have 3 VLANS to work with acorss all 70 VMS and you have routing enabled between each VLAN

Now if you have two physical network cards on hyper-V connected to two ports on physical switch, you can do network port level VLAN truncking (all 3 VLAN IDs) on each port which allow you to pass all 3 VLANS traffic through that ports and u don't need to tag VLAN ID on each VM.
Network admins can do that for you
Hpoe that helps
