If you want to read more on networking in VMware ESX/ESXi, then I recommend the following:-

I would also recommend reading through the Networking Sections of the following guides to gain a better understanding of Networking in VMware ESX/ESXi.

There is no Trunk port configuration on the ESXi server.

Trunking is done on the Physical switch port!

Sample switch port configuration for VLAN and TRUNK MODE (1006628)
