How set native vlan on a VM in vSphere when using the 1000V?

Using the vSphere Distr Switch, we set native VLAN per VM by setting the VLAN d to 0.

How do we set the native VLAN for a VM if the VM is connected to a 1000V? I heard we no longer can use VLAN ID 0?

Same way you would on any Cisco switch.

Add this command to your Uplink port profile:

switchport trunk native vlan X

Keep in mind there is no VLAN 0.  VLAN "0" is just how vmware designates the untagged VLAN.  Valid ranges are 1-4095 according to the standard.

ok, I think what confuses me is that this changed with the 1000V. Correct? Before this was configured in vSphere GUI and we set the VLAN to 0 for the network to be untagged. With the 1000V all the network config was moved to the 1000V.
