Sorry, I'm afraid this isn't possible - a trunk interface must be tied to an external network and subinterfaces are only tied to org VDC networks within that edge. You could, however, create this above VCD and map it as a direct connected External Network inside of a orgVDC network.

Hi there - could you provide further context here? What kind of org VDC networks and what topology are you trying to achieve?

We introduced local Datacenter groups in VCD 10.1 that allows you to share a routed org VDC network between two orgVDC's while establishing active/passive or active/active egress points. This is for NSX-V as of today.

Hi,

On my production site, I have Alteon VM with three interfaces, two with VLAN ID and one as a Trunk.

On my DR site, I have two subinterfaces connected to Edge gateway.

I would like to create a trunk that will include these two subinterfaces to simulate the trunk on my DR site and test the Alteon

Any suggestions?

Thank you
