Setup VLANs in ESXi

This post was originally published on this site

Hello all,

 

I am a network engineer who now has responsibility for vSphere products. I am beginning to dive into vSwitches and have a few questions that I hope someone could help me with.

 

My lab ESXi server is connected to my core switch. I would like two vlans to flow to the vSwitch, vlans 30 and 40. The core switch is configured as tagged for vlans 30 and 40. Forst off is this correct or should I be setting these as untagged to flow. Second what changes do I have to make on the vSwitch side, so that I can create vms and put them on the right vlan? Right now the vSwitch is showing vlan 0, which I assume is a default?

 

Thanks,
Steve
