When creating Vmkernel ports you assign them IP addresses.
Can those ports be in different VLANs than the Vlan of the Physical adapters.
for instance in the screenshot below all vmkernel ports are in subnet (ie, Vlan10) .  physical NICs vmnic0 and vmnic1 should be in Vlan 10 on the physical switch. correct ?

if I need to have the vmkernel ports in different vlans, then the physical NICs should also be in different VLANs on the physical switch. correct ?
