HI Ahmed,

No, you cannot have Cluster IP in different VLAN.
1) Cluster Name: Enter a name for the cluster
2) IP Address (optional): Enter an external (virtual) IP address for the cluster.
This field sets a logical IP address that always points to an active Controller VM (provided the cluster is up), which removes the need to enter the address of a specific Controller VM. This parameter is required for Hyper-V clusters and is optional for ESXi and AHV clusters.

As the Cluster IP will be redirected to active CVM (any CVM) it has to be in the same VLAN.
