Attached guide "ESXI_OVA_SETUP.pdf" will walk thorough how to set up the ArubaOS-CX OVA in an ESXI environment.
In this post, we will see how to interconnect ArubaOS-CX OVA in ESXI environment and ArubaOS-CX physical switches.
vSwitch deals with the uplinks (Physical adapters) and port groups.
Topology with vSwitch and PortGroup mapping.
Connectivity within ESXI environment:
Virtual switches: RTRA-RTRB-vs, RTRB-RTRC-vs, RTRC-RTRA-vs
Port Groups: RTRA-RTRB-PG, RTRB-RTRC-PG, RTRC-RTRA-PG
RTRA-RTRB-vs, RTRB-RTRC-vs and RTRC-RTRA-vs are isolated vswitch that represents the link between 2 devices.
RTRA-RTRB-vs has RTRA-RTRB-PG that is associated to RouterA 1/1/2 and RouterB 1/1/2 ports.
RTRB-RTRC-vs has RTRB-RTRC-PG that is associated to RouterB 1/1/1 and RouterC 1/1/2 ports.
RTRC-RTRA-vs has RTRC-RTRA-PG that is associated to RouterC 1/1/1 and RouterA 1/1/1 ports.
Connectivity between ESXI environment and Physical switches:
Physical Adapter: Eth1
Virtual switch: vswitch1
Port Groups: RouterA-PG and RouterB-PG.
vswitch1 has RouterA-PG that is associated to RouterA 1/1/3, tagging VLAN ID 1204.
vswitch1 has RouterB-PG that is associated to RouterB 1/1/3, tagging VLAN ID 1206.
vswitch1 is connected to physical adapter eth1.
