I read this KB article:
and this kb article:
CURRENT SETUP: simple "VM Network" nothing fancy. vswitch0 has vlan ID set to none(0), load balancing is set to port ID. On the physical switch, again nothing fancy, untagged ports.
I'd like to setup the existing ports with another VLAN as well as the default/untagged. I can do this on my physical switches by adding the port to a tagged/802.1q vlan id. So the port would have both tagged (on that vlan) and untagged (the default vlan) traffic.
The question I have is how to do it in VMWare properly. Do I create a new network (in Inventory, Networking) as a new vNetwork Distributed Switch? If so, do I choose the 4.1 version?
I guess I'm looking for a walkthrough since the KB articles talk more about the physical switch side than VMWare itself.
BOTTOM LINE: all I want to do is allow a VM to communicate on VLAN id = 12 across the existing physical switch ports that are currently untagged ports to vswitch0.
