    Hi all

     

    I try to setup the VMC with one trunk port.

     

    My Port configuration from VMC:

    interface gigabitethernet 0/0/0
        description "GE0/0/0"
        trusted
        trusted vlan 1-4094
        no poe
        switchport mode trunk
        no spanning-tree
    !
    interface vlan 4
        ip address 192.168.1.254 255.255.255.0
    !

    The configuration on ESXi is as follow:

    If I change the vSwitch fixed to VLAN 4 it works.

     

    Thanks for helping.

    Try setting the native vlan on the trunk to something you don't use like VLAN 1. The set the trunk allowed vlans to all.

     

    I add some weird issues with this for a customer as well.

    This also worked for me on Brocade switches. Thank you!
