I had an ESXi host on a UCS blade and in that the VLAN 138 was configured right from the ESXi host. I rebuilt the blade as a physical Server 2008 host and the nic in the physical server under properties under Configure does not have the standard VLAN setting where I could set it to 138. I went to the service profile and changed the default vlan to 138 and reset the connectivity but I still cannot connect outside the server.
Update: I do not know what I did but I have one up and running. I guess my question is this. Does the server have to be rebooted if I make a change to a nic card through the profile in order for it to take effect?
