When the sub interface is added to a trunk vNic backed by distributed portgroup, VLAN or VXLAN trunk is automatically configured on the trunk port. When the sub interface is added to a trunk vNic backed by standard portgroup, only VLAN trunk is supported.

Before you begin

Verify that a sub interface with a trunk vNic backed by standard portgroup is available. See Add a Sub Interface.

  3. Select the standard portgroup and click Edit Settings.
  4. Click the VLAN tab.
  5. In VLAN Type, select VLAN Trunking and type the VLAN IDs to be trunked.
