How to configure a port of the switch SummitX-150 to connect a vmware infrastructure with several machines on differents VLANs


I'm configuring a switch Extreme SummitX-150 Port to connect an ESXi platform on its port linked to a vswitch. the vswitch has several VMs on differents vlans. How to configure the Switch Port? Previously the switch used was a cisco 2960 and the configuration we used was
switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan [MAN_vlan]
switchport trunk allowed vlan [list of the vlans whose traffics will be enabled on this port]

Hello Ait Support,

To simplify tagging on EXOS the native vlan is the untagged vlan. If you are adding more then one vlan to a port then it is considered a trunk port. Only one vlan can be added to a port as untagged. The equivalent configuration would be this:

switchport trunk native vlan [MAN_vlan]
switchport trunk allowed vlan [list of the vlans whose traffics will be enabled on this port] \

to:

configure vlan MAN_vlan add port untagged
configure VLAN [list of the VLANs whose traffics will be enabled on this port] add port tagged

Continue the second command until the port has been added into each VLAN individually. On some newer versions of EXOS you can put in a VLAN id list using the tag given to that VLAN

Hope this helps!

This is a great article about vlans and tagging.
