Cisco/Virtual Connect and 802.1Q over Virtual Connect question

Johan had a VLAN tunneling quesiton:

 

****************

 

For hosting, a (Cisco) customer relies on 802.1Q (tunneling), all virtualized hosts see all virtual networks on a single NIC.

Would Virtual Connect Flex-10 be able to forward this traffic to the blade server without altering anything?

The idea would be to configure VC in Vlan tunneling and configure a single vNet carrying all traffic.

Terri replied:

Does this clarify it?

 

 Tunnel mode: each packet is tagged by VC on ingress, based on double-tagging standard, and untagged upon egress.

The original vlan tag is then considered as payload, and does not participate in any switching decision, while it goes through VC.

Any other comments or help for Johan?
