Hello,

I am trying to setup my VM to operate on their own VLAN ID so that they are isolated from each other in terms of networking.

I have a hyperV 2012 server, cisco sf300 and a sonic wall.  I want to have each VM on its on separate subnet, isolated from each other using VLAN IDs.  I believe I am stuck at setting up the switch and sonic wall to accept this traffic from the server.

Has anyone done this before?

Thanks,

Also, is this possible without a managed switch or is a managed switch needed?

You can set up the VLANs on the Sonicwall. However, it also depends on how you want the switch ports to act. If you want them to provide a connection to a different VLAN by default, then you need a managed switch. Otherwise it does not matter.

For the network card, are you using the MS or manufacturer driver? This can make a huge difference. You need to be using the manufacturer NIC driver on the host OS.

You will need to configure your vLANs on your Cisco switch.  Depending on your preference, you could setup port based vLANs or 802.1Q tagging.

Once you have that, you would configure your VMWare vSwitch interface to tag the vLAN on the switch port it you setup 802.1Q tagging.

Once that is done, you can setup vLAN tagging and your rules for routing between your vLANs using your Sonicwall.

  • create a vLAN sub interface on X0
vlan sub IFcreate a vLAN sub interface on X0
  • Create rules to route traffic between your vLANs via the Sonicwall
