I have been trying to find out information for our Cisco UCS Environment to solve an issue that I am having in our environment.
We have a Cisco UCS B environment with 6x B220 servers connecting to 2x 6248UP Fabric Interconnects. Each UCS B host runs VMware 6 and is setup to use dynamic switching that reads the information from the 6248 FI's. The 6248UP is then connected to another Cisco 3850 stack in trunk mode, which then connects to the rest of the network environment.
I have a Virtual Firewall that is limited to having 8 vNIC Ports attached to it but can create sub-interfaces using VLAN tagging on a single port. What I am trying to do is create this vNIC as a trunk port that can tag and untag information to these sub-interfaces. While I have done the work in VMware by creating a trunk in DVS, I am unable to get it to connect to this port these networks via the 3750 switches.
I am unsure on what I need to create in UCS that will allow me to create a trunk port.... or a port that is capable of VLAN tagging to present to the UCS-B host. Do I create the individual vLans and present them to the host and do the work in vCenter? Or is there a port I need to create on the FEX to make this work?
