Dear Experts

Since you didn't specify the switch type I am going to assume cisco..

Here is a document that shows you how to configure a basic VLAN on a cisco catalyst switch.


Configure the VLAN on Catalyst Switches That Run CatOS
Create VLANs and Ports
Complete the steps in this section in order to create a VLAN.
Before you can create a VLAN, the switch must be in VTP server mode or VTP transparent mode. If the switch is a VTP server, you must define a VTP domain name before you can add any VLANs.

You will need to configure both physical switch and ESXi networking for VLANs
