I am new to virtual servers, vlans. I am a programmer and have been assigned the task to make a stable storage server, i threw XenServer Free 5.6SP2 on an old box (HP ProLiant ML350 G5) set my raid(5), installed the footprint, all went well. very simple using the gui. I installed my image of windows server 2003, all worked well.
Now from xencenter, i set my networks up, created a vlan. But how do i connect my VLAN to the network? Do i need a compatible switch? Do i do something with this switch? Its all new, confusing. Do i need 1 physical NIC per VM? i was under the impression i can use my only physical NIC for as many server as i wanted (obviously with consequences)
Basically, i have a server with xenserver. windows server 2003 installed and working. just cant get it onto MY network.
I am appreciative of your time reading this.
