Blades connecting through Virtual Connect Flex-10 and VLAN

Fabio had a VLAN question:

One quick question:

 

If i need one server to connect through another on a VC module, i have to point both servers to the same network, and disable the private network functionality. This affects my ability to conect directly to on external switch VLAN ( the external port can´t have VLAN´s assigned ), or does this have to be handled by the external switch ?

Vincent didn't think his reasoning was correct:

 What makes you think it would affect your ability to connect to an external switch ? That VC network could still be part of a SUS and handle both connections between blades inside the enclosure and connections to the outside over a VLAN trunk if that’s what you want.
