A logical switch creates logical broadcast domains or segments to which an application or tenant virtual machine can be logically wired. This allows for flexibility and speed of deployment while still providing all the characteristics of a physical network's broadcast domains (VLANs) without physical Layer 2 sprawl or spanning tree issues. Configuring logical switches is a multi-step process. You must follow these steps in order to complete logical switch configuration.

Verify the following.

You have the Super Administrator or Enterprise Administrator role permission to configure and manage logical switches.

Network virtualization components are installed on the clusters that are to be part of the logical switch. See

You have the minimum required software versions.

Physical infrastructure MTU is at least 50 bytes more than the MTU of the virtual machine vNIC.

Managed IP address is set for each vCenter server in the vCenter Server Runtime Settings. See vCenter Server and Host Management.

DHCP is available on VXLAN transport VLANs if you are using DHCP for IP assignment for VMKNics

A consistent distributed virtual switch type (vendor etc.) and version is being used across a given transport zone. Inconsistent switch types can lead to undefined behavior in your logical switch.

5- tuple hash distribution should be enabled for Link Aggregation Control Protocol (LACP).
