You should make a trunk connection with each switch and (un)tag the VLAN over these trunks so that the VLAN is available on all switches, you also need to therefor create this VLAN on all switches.

I think I understand your switch setup, but I don't see any trunks between the switches to pass the VLANs? Also, do you want all the VLANs to be available on the ESXi server (except for maybe VLAN1), probably, just asking...

on your switch(es), can you perform "show trunk" and "show lacp" and give us the results?

More info on HP trunks/lacp can be found here, and is quite informative.

Sorry, had little time yesterday...

Now I'm a little confused, how many switches do you have, in your first drawing I count 3 switches, I also see 4 VLANs (not counting VLAN1). The config also show that VLAN4 is a routed VLAN, it has an IP-address, the config also shows that the different VLANs are not tagged on the uplinks (Trunks).

So, is this just 1 switch or 3? Because I keep seeing only the config of 1 switch.

is it like this:

ESXi SERVER ---> SWITCH

or more like this?

ESXi SERVER ---> SWITCH1 --- trunk --- SWITCH2 --- trunk --- SWITCH3

There are 3 switches Vlan200 - Vlan4 is the only trunked switch. do i need to trunk all switches that requires the VLan to pass through?

Zephyr ICTCloud ArchitectCommented:
If you want your VLAN to be available on all switches you need to trunk it over all the switches, if for example your ESXi server needs to have VLAN200 and your client needs to be on VLAN200 as well but is on the last switch in the chain all switches in the chain need VLAN200 passing over the trunk, VLAN200 should also be defined on the interfaces that have the server/client connected ... Hope this makes sence.

Ok in the diagram, i have three switch Vlan200 Switch, which is Trunked to Switch .5 and then i have switch .4 uplink via fiber cable (p21) then a esxi host connected to p20 on the .4 switch. This means i need to trunk  p21 on .4 and .5 switches and tag the individual port to pass traffic?
