You perform network configuration for each ESXi host using the VMware Host Client.

You configure the VLAN ID of the VM Network portgroup on the vSphere Standard Switch. This configuration provides connectivity and common network configuration for virtual machines that reside on each host.

You repeat this procedure for all hosts in the management and the shared edge and compute cluster with the following VLAN IDs.
