To make use of traffic isolation, you should configure separate VLAN IDs for the front end and back end networks of the VSA cluster.

1

Read the documentation for your Gigabit Ethernet switch for information about how to configure VLAN IDs.

2

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.
