  • Multi VLAN vmnic

    Have a ESXi 4.1 cluster and configured each host vSwitch3 identically. I'm having trouble getting a multi VLAN setup on a vSwitch, specifically when I physically connect more than one port on the trunk group I lose newtork connectivity

    I've setup a separate port group on the vSwitch and a trunk port group on the pSwitch for each hosts pPort and assigned the appropriate tagging for each VLAN on the pswitch. But when I connect more than one pport at the pswitch I loose network connectivity to all of the devices. The vmguests adapters are configured to use the proper network connection. The Switches are configured like so:

    vSwitch3
    vmnic3
    port group: VM Network Voice VLAN - ID: 2
    port group: SIP VLAN - ID: 999

    pSwitch (ProCurve 5400 series)
    Trunk name:: trk1
    Type: LACP
    Ifaces: F14 F17 F19
    VLAN 999: UNTAGGED
    VLAN 2: TAGGED

    I tried removing the VLAN ID for each port group and leaving only one of them with an ID to no avail. I contacted HP support to ensure the trunk port group was setup correctly. I'm at a loss at what is causing this issue, any ideas?

    First thing I notice is you are using LACP with multiple interfaces.
    But you are using only one vNIC.

    That doesn't sound right...

      So the port type should be set to "trunk" instead as that's my only other option?

        So I set the NIC teaming to "Route based on IP hash" and set the trunk type to "Trunk" and now server in VLAN 2 can communicate properly. Thanks for the help!

          With a LCAP configuration you create basically a channel with 2 or more ports, in your case I think it where 3.

            You are correct, there are 3 ports included in the trunk group.
