basically here is my setup:
[Host A] = A hypervisor running ESXi 5.0
[Switch A] = A Cisco 2960-S Series 48 port switch
[Switch B] = A Cisco 2960-S Series 48 port switch
[P-Router] = A physical Cisco 1941 router
[V-Router1] = A virtual Untangle 10 router
[V-Router2] = A virtual Untangle 10 router
[P-Router] is the top level router, giving out the management network. [Host A] is connected to that router on NIC1. [V-Router1] is a router (Untangle) running as a virtual machine on [Host A]. The WAN on the [V-Router1] is set to NIC1 on [Host A] (for internet connectivity), and the LAN is connected to a port group (for this we'll just call it "Group1"). The "Group1" port group is connected to NIC2 on [Host A]. There is a second router, [V-Router2] running as a virtual machine with its LAN connected to "Group2". Both port groups are connected to the same physical NIC (NIC2). NIC2 is connected to [Switch A]. There is a trunk line between [Switch A] and [Switch B]. I have set Group1's VLAN ID to 201 and Group2's VLAN to 202. NIC2 connects to port 1 on [Switch A], and this is the config for that port:
int Gi1/0/1 switchport mode trunk switchport trunk allowed vlan 201,202 switchport nonegotiate
I then have a second port on [Switch A] configured this way (for testing):
int Gi1/0/25 switchport mode access switchport access vlan 201
When plugging my computer into port 25, I get no network connectivity (and am given a 169.254.*) address. Aside from this configuration, I have also tried setting the VLAN ID to
0 (None) and
4095 (All), and I have also tried setting up a VLAN interface in Untangle. However, I am not sure if I configured that correctly. In Untangle I have my External interface, and Internal interface. If anyone could advise how to setup a tagged VLAN interface please let me know!
I am banging my head against the wall on this one, i'm hoping it is something simple that I am missing! The trunk between [Switch A] and [Switch B] works, and successfully carries over the data for my Management VLAN, however I can not get the data from my virtual router even on [Switch A] (the switch it is plugged into). I can also say, that I have verified the [V-Router1] and [V-Router2] work and give out DHCP. I received an address and could browse the web when plugging my computer directly into NIC2 on [Host A] and when creating another VM within port groups 1 and 2.
