Threshold groups for VLAN tagging are used to ensure that systems are assigned to their appropriate VLAN. These groups are described in the VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager User Guide, under “Performing tasks in the Thresholds tab”.

The VMware Smart Assurance IP Manager Reference Guide provides information on the default system VLAN tag groups, their target classes and matching criteria, and their default settings. The target class for all system VLAN tag groups is UnitaryComputerSystem.

  • Even though the following settings are available to a system VLAN tag group, only the “VLAN Tagging Policy” setting is valid:

    • Cisco Fast and NvRam Memory

    • Connectivity

    • Environment

    • File System

    • Interface Management Policy

    • Juniper Environment

    • Processor and Memory

    • VLAN Tagging Policy

  • The “Other Systems” group has the lowest priority. Managed systems that do not match the criteria for the Switches system VLAN tag group become members of the Other Systems group. For example, managed host systems become members of the Other Systems group.
