Trunk Port Configuration for ESX Server

I need to configure a 3560 port to connect ESX servers to our edge swtiches. Does anyone know how I need to do this? Do I need to create an SVI so that the ESX server has a gateway address and then trunk the VLANS down?

Re: Trunk Port Configuration for ESX Server

Yes, you need to trunk the port(s) connecting to your ESX server. If the sane 3560 is serving as a router for you, then you also need to create an SVI with an IP address:

Example

layer-3 vlan (SVI)

interface vlan 10

ip address 10.10.10.1 255.255.255.0

layer-2 vlan

vlan 10

name ESX server vlan

add the port(s) to vlan 10 and trunk it
