VC Flex-10 with 1 VC Domain and 3 enclosures stacking for VMware vSphere ESX 5

I have a PoC configuration with VC Flex-10 with 1 VC Domain and 3 enclosures stacking.

 

Configuration:
3 enclosures stacking in one VC domain
Flex-10 on Bay1 and Bay2 Active/Active,
Bay1 port1 and 2 for stacking, port 3,4,5,6 for Uplink VLAN-Trunk-1
Bay2 port1 and 2 for stacking, port 3,4,5,6 for Uplink VLAN-Trunk-2
vSwitch0 for Management Console 1GB
vSwitch1 for vMotion 1GB
vSwitch2 for Production 7GB
vSwitch3 for  Isolated VLAN 1GB

 

It is possible implement vSwitch3 for isolated VLAN across 3 enclosures stacking and this meant all for UAT servers across 3 enclosures can ping across within 3 enclosures stacking and it should not link to production network.

 

Thank you

Yes, just create it without any uplinks.  Any traffic on that network will not be able to leave the chassis.
