Creating virtual NICs on a Hyper-V host OS that accesses or uses vlans in a trunked virtual switch

Last Modified: 2015-11-29
Is this possible?
To me it seems like not.

From what I can see, it is possible to let the host OS share the NIC that a virtual switch is created on, but it is not possible to create a virtual NIC on a Hyper-V host OS that accesses or uses vlans in that virtual switch. Or is there a way?
