VLAN Tunnel & SUS configuration on external switch



to reduce VLAN traffic we setup VLAN mapping for vmotion & mgmt network and VLAN tunnel for VM network on the VC.


The ports on the cisco switch have been setup as trunk ports. They have been set to just allow the explicit VLANs used on the VC for VLAN Mapping (switchport trunk allow)


The external ports for the VLAN tunnel on the other site will allow all VLANs except the mapped VLANs.


I wonder if this is an suitable setup on the cisco switch?
