Distributed Switch - VLAN Trunking Mode not working

Hello there,

We are evaluting this VLAN type and are having issues getting this to work.  We are trunking VLANs down from the switch to the physical server.  From there we are creating a distributed switch with the VLAN trunking mode turned on (for example 1-5).  When I point a VM's NIC to this port group (static IP configured in the O/S) there is no connectivity whatsoever to the VLAN that I am trying to connect to.  I then change the VLAN type to specify a VLAN and point the VM's NIC to it and then it works.  I know that all the VLANs are getting to the ESXi Host.  What gives?  Am I missing something here?

Thanks in advance.
