GbE2c VLANs over a common Trunk


I have a need to do multiple VLANs within the GbE2c and to communicate to another switch over the same trunk.

I created VLAN2 on the GbE2 and added P10 & 11 with PVID2 and then I created VLAN3 and added Ports 15 & 16 with PVID3
And then Added a trunk for ports 20 & 21 with tagging enabled on them.
I also added those ports to VLAN2 & VLAN3

The result was following:

The trunk works only for VLAN2 if the trunk memebers (20&21) have PVID2
The trunk works only for VLAN3 if the trunk
members (20&21) have PVID3

I can't see how the trunk will work for both VLANs since it follows the PVID of the trunk members which is one value at time.

Any explanation is appreciated.

Keep it simple
