I wanted to be able to have a trucked connection in my VMware DVS for my New Nutanix Lab. See this Post //vbrainstorm.com/nutanix-cluster-create-cli/
I setup a dvs port group for my nested Nutanix lab. Titled All.
|Port binding||Static binding|
|Number of ports||8|
|Network resource pool||(default)|
I set it up as vlan trunking.
|VLAN trunk range||0-4094|
I had to enable all the security features as follows.
|MAC address changes||Accept|
next, even although I had followed this guide, since I’m using vlan trunking, I needed to assign vlans within the host and vcm.
open console on the host, login as root and type in the following:
- #ovs-vsctl set port br0 tag=idhere
then you need to connect to the cvm that is running on that host and configure it as well.
- #ssh [email protected]
login with cvm defaults.
- #change_cvm_vlan idhere
I used vlan 70.
