my NX nodes having eth0 & eth1 is 10 Gig / eth2 & eth3 is 1 Gig.
we have created new bridge br1 with eth2,eth3 uplinks and created new vlan (vlan 17 ) in br1 for DMZ traffic.
command used -: acli net.create VLAN-DMZ vswitch_name=br1 vlan=17
current scenario is default br0 is in under vs0.
Query -: Do I need to make a vs1 (vSwitch1) for br1?

Short answer is yes. Please check this link https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=AHV-Admin-Guide-v6_1:ahv-acr-l2-nw-mgmt-ovs-c.html
I suppose that you’ve been deployed br1 with manage_ovs commands, first creating the single bridge and the configuring interfaces and bond mode. If i am right, next time you can try to do it via Prism Element using the “Create VS” wizard which automatically creates bridge, bond and virtual switch. It’s faster. Here’s the link https://portal.nutanix.com/page/documents/details?targetId=Web-Console-Guide-Prism-v6_1:wc-network-vs-create-upgrade-wc-t.html
Now your host will look similar to the image below. Yes I’m using 1G interfaces for vs0 on the lab, sadly I don’t have a 10G switch on the lab
To migrate br1 from “bridge” to “virtual switch” use this command from acli net.migrate_br_to_virtual_switch br1 vs_name=vs1 Your VLAN will migrate too.
VLAN has no virtual switch before migration:
VLAN “moved” to vs1 after migration
Please note, when you created the VLAN on br1 you used the vswitch_name parameter which is deprecated.
Once br1 has been migrated to vs1, and if further VLANs are required you can create them directly thorough Prism Element on the desired virtual switch
To sum up>
Long answer, hope it clarify things a bit
Thanks for the answer
