VMware and QinQ / 802.1AD / Stacked VLAN / double VLAN

Hi all,

we are wondering whats the current status of VMware products regarding QinQ (or whatever you call it)? 

Does ESXi/vSphere or any other VMware product support QinQ*? If so, how to configure it?

*It dosnt matter if its QinQ according to 802.1ad with proper ethertypes or "dirty" QinQ with two times VLAN (Q-tagging) ethertype tags.


We have switches with QinQ support, but we dont know how to connect these technology to the VMware hypervisors.



Kind regards
