Can VLANs exist on more than 1 FlexNIC on a physical nic.?

Dan had a configuration question:




HI Everyone,  I need a REAL quick answer on this.  With Virtual Connect - Can VLANs exist on more than 1  FlexNIC on a physical nic.?  I know this was NOT supported earlier and it still may not be supported – however, I thought I heard or saw something that this will be supported in a FW upgrade…




From Dan:




Still not supported.

Don't know in the future.


You can make it work if you use 2 diff uplinks and define the VLAN twice (or 4 times for active/active) Then VC sees them as diff VLANs internally.




Any other comments or suggestions for Dan? Part of what I heard is that this configuration can produce network loops and we don't want that as we are not part of the network Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).
