Configure HP switch to untag VLANs from VMWare esxi 5.5

Posted on 2015-02-06
Last Modified: 2015-02-06
We have a HP V1910-24G switch which we want to connect to a VMWare host  to be able to *untag* tagged VLANs from VMWare ESXi 5.5.

HP switch port 24 is connected to VMWare host network adapter with tagged traffic.
VLAN ID 20 from VMWare is untagged to HP switch port 1-8,
VLAN ID 21 is untagged to ports 9-16

The HP switch has so many different VLAN 'flavors' and properties so I want to have this set up as best practice to get the most out of it.  Thanks a lot for helping up with this.

regards Tor

If I understand you correctly, what you're trying to do is route traffic from one VLAN to another.

What VLANs are tagged on port 24?

VMWare tags VLAN ID 20 and 21 and via the host's network interface this is connected to port 24.  I want this to be untagged (VID 20 to the switch port 1-8 and VID 21 to the switch port 9-16).  Normally this is a piece of cake configuring a switch for VLANs but this HP switch had so many different settings and I just want to get them all correctly set for optimum performance.  If possible with port 23 and 24 trunked for more bandwidth....

Okay, I think that got it now.

This is actually default behavior.  Here's what your config will look like:

 tagged 24
 untagged 1-8
 tagged 24
 untagged 9-16

Good.  I have always only configured managed switches via the webinterface.  Is this example using some commandline via the console input or is it via ssh?
Can I use the webinterface to achieve the same thing?

Yes.  This is the CLI commands.  It can be done via the web interface as well.
