Points of My Scenario:

1. I started building physical ESXi hosts by PXE boot - using trunked network ports (it works/is successful)

2. The "Native VLAN" feature is configured on the trunked network ports

3. HOWEVER: when a VM portgroup is created using the native VLAN's ID, it does not work anymore (no network access).

4. VM portgroups using this ID only work when connected to trunked network ports that are NOT configured with native VLAN.

QUESTION: How can I use the native VLAN's ID in a VM portgroup so that both can work?
