  • 1.  packet tagging with VLAN ID in Esxi 6.

    Hi!

    I have a questuion about how does vlan tagging works in ESXI.

    I have an ESXI v6, which is connected to Cisco router.

    On EXSI, i created Virtual Machine port goup for vlan 911, linked it to Vmnic 0 (it is the only active NIC on server). I set vlan ID to 911 value.

    Also, i created Virtual machine and assigned its interface to VLAN911 Virtual Machine port goup.  But on the Cisco router, i can see this WM mac address in vlan 1 (untagged, instead of 911 tagged)


    So, i have two questions:

    1) If i set vlan ID on Virtual Machine port goup, does it mean, that ESXI will add tag to packet that leave VMNIC?

    2) If not, how to force ESXI add this tag?


    Thanks!
