I have a Production network in VMM 2012 that has a trunk from the managed ProCurve switch (running VLANs) to the guest VM nic. The connection from switch to Hyper-V guest network is a trunk carrying VLANs 69 and 200. I initially created the Fabric Logical Network as below.
Viewing the same machine as a self service user, I am unable to select the VLAN and can only select the adapter. I understand self service users cannot set VLANs.
So I instead went back and created the VLANs under the same network site:
I then added a new VM Network. Below is a screenshot of the Data subnet being added, i repeated for Server and Voice subnets so each had their own VM network:
Then when adding a new VM as a guest, I see the site is in the drop down list (one and only one site is listed here, in this case Data_0). Selecting this automatically ticks the VLAN with the correct ID:
With the above, i would need to add a separate VM Network for each site. Whilst this extra work isn't a problem, I need to check:
Is this is the correct way of doing things (adding one VM network per network subnet)?
For the VM Guest hardware NIC properties, why is there a drop down list for the VM Subnet when I can only add one site to a VM network anyway?
For the VM Subnet properties of the VM Network, is it normal to not be able to add more than one VM subnet to a VM Network?
