i have a server with ESX5, have a switch with about 20 vlans, this is how setup the trunk port
interface GigabitEthernet0/1/1 description ToOper port link-type trunk undo port trunk allow-pass vlan 1 port trunk allow-pass vlan 2 to 14 stp disable ntdp enable ndp enable bpdu enable
then, i created a standar switch(
sw1) using the vSphere Client, the VLAN ID is set to
All (4095), i also created a VM with Debian 6, with a NIC connected to
sw1, now, i want to configure this NIC for a selected group of vlans
auto vlan10 iface vlan10 inet static address 126.96.36.199 netmask 255.255.255.224 mtu 1500 vlan_raw_device eth0 auto vlan14 iface vlan14 inet static address 188.8.131.52 netmask 255.255.255.248 mtu 1500 vlan_raw_device eth0
so, when i restart the network using
/etc/init.d/networking restart, i got this error
Reconfiguring network interfaces...SIOCSIFADDR: No such device vlan14: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device SIOCSIFNETMASK: No such device SIOCSIFBRDADDR: No such device vlan14: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device SIOCSIFMTU: No such device vlan14: ERROR while getting interface flags: No such device Failed to bring up vlan14. done.
this is just part of the error, so, my questions is:
is this possible?, i mean, what i'm trying to achieve using ESX Virtual Machines, VLANS, etc
is this a Debian problem?
can be solved?
i've read about a file named
z25_persistent-net.rules in Debian but it doesn't exist in my installation.
vSphere Networking for ESX5 guide, you can read:
If you enter 0 or leave the option blank, the port group can see only untagged (non-VLAN) traffic. If you enter 4095, the port group can see traffic on any VLAN while leaving the VLAN tags intact.
So, in theory, it should work, right?
Hope you can help me up with this one
