To make use of traffic isolation, you should configure separate VLAN IDs for the front end and back end networks of the VSA cluster.
Note: Using VLAN IDs is not mandatory.
- Read the documentation for your Ethernet switch for information about how to configure VLAN IDs.
- Work with your network administrator to assign VLAN IDs for the front end and back end networks.
A VLAN ID should range from 1 to 4094, as 0 and 4095 are not allowed.
The assigned VLAN IDs are ready to be assigned to the ESXi hosts and to the VSA cluster network.
Note: The VLAN must not be assigned to specific NIC ports.
