VC Ethernet + VLan

Hi

 

I didn't find clearly how VC Ethernet works with VLans.

 

Is it possible to route VLans through VC transparently?

 

E.g.:

 

Blade <> VC <> external switch

I configure a network without using VLan tags in VC and put one port of the blade and on external prot linked to the switch into that network.

When I start using VLan tags within the blade and configure the on the external switch but do *NOT* configure the VLan within VC - will I be able to communicate using the tagged VLan?

 

Regards

Re: VC Ethernet + VLan

Hi

 

I just found the tunnel mode for VLans. This is exactly what I am looking for.

The Problem is that in the VC version I am currently able to look at (2.32) does not support using some mapped VLans and a tunneled VLan at the same time.

 

Do newer versions of VC support this?

Re: VC Ethernet + VLan

Take a look at the latest Virtual Connect 3.15. There is also the latest Virtual Connect Cookbook with new scenarios. I believe that you can use tagged VLANs and Tunnel mode but there are restrictions.
