vxlan preparation basics

trying to get 2 basic questions answered. Setting up up a vxlan

i have one vdsSwitch with port group connected to vlan 151 and another cluster has vdswtich with port group connected to vlan 102

when preparing the network virtualization , preparation what is the Vlan # place in the box ? is this the vxlan number that i want to create ?

Also, the vmknic ip . is that going to be an ip for the new vxlan or is that an ip on vlan 151 and vlan 102.

kind of confusing

the new vxlan that you will use to route, needs to be created and routed before you get started.
