No VLANs on virtual switches a bad practise?

Hi All

I have a VSphere 6 server running vDS virtual switches. I have no vlans configured, but I have read that this is a bad practise (or using vlan 0 or 1).

Could someone elaborate on why?

Thanks

What to configure actually depends on your needs. It's certainly not a bad idea to configure things in a way which will allow to grow, but if you are happy with your configuration that's fine. If you want to have some advice about your setup from others, please provide some details about your current configuration, the physical network environment, and any future requirements that you are already aware of.
