I am trying to have a VM with a presence on multiple vlans. This is a temporary situation that will be resolved once the needed switch actually arrives. Unfortunately that will be several weeks.
I have a VM that is already on one vlan, vlan 190. I would like for it to also provide dhcp on another vlan, vlan 150. I have the physical network card plugged into a trunk port that has access to all the vlans.
The VM has a kernel port on vlan 190. Is it possible for it to also have a VM Port group also on that vlan ?
Should I use a separate vSwitch to do this ?
I am new to VMware and havent been able to figure this out at this point.
With the physical uplink ports configured as a trunk/tagged (802.1Q) port you can create multiple port groups on the vSwitch, each with another of the required VLAN IDs and connect the VM to those port groups by adding additional virtual network adapters to the VM.
