vLan Tagging concept in VMWare
Posted on 2014-09-29
I need to understand VLan tagging concepts in VMware. I have gone through internet , but till now , i haven't got an clear understanding of it.
Lets consider below situation.
I have a a vSwitch 0 , which has got 3 port groups
1). Port group1 -- > 148 vLan tagged to it.
2). Port group 2--> 157 vLan tagged to it. (File and Print servers in this group)
3). Port group 3 -->192 VLAN tagged to it.
I have enabled trunk on my physical switch.
Say for EG : I am accessing one of the file servers from my client machine(which is not part of any vlan) , how the traffic will be routed to 157 VLAN. how the network packets are tagged with VLAN and where it is tagged?
2), what happens in vSWITCH once it receive the tagged packet?
I will have more question once I receive an answer to it :)
