This seems like the place to post this, so please tell me if I need to move it.I am trying to setup a lab with a Nutanix G3 3060 cluster running 5.15. Using AHV, which I don’t have a lot of experience with. I think I am having a networking problem. For lab I’m only using 1GB connections.On each link I have a native or untagged VLAN which the CVM’s use. I also have several other Tagged or Trunked VLANs that I want to use for other purposes in the lab.The CMV’s are fine and the cluster comes up no problem. It has some complaints like NTP and the like, but it is otherwise good.Under networking I added the other VLANs and their VLAN IDs.I then created an OPNSense VM and gave it 2 NICs. One on the management VLAN. The same one the CVM’s use that is native. Then a second NIC with one of the tagged VLANs .I have verified that both NICs are set to connected. I even tried adding a 3rd. The management NIC (untagged) comes up and I can access the VM, but the other one won’t. OPNSense is reporting
We would really like to use the distributed switch in VMware cluster. There seems to be a lack of documentation on how to properly implement it with Nutanix. For example I seem to remember that the Nutanix controller VM’s should not be moved from their installed switch and they have to be able to talk to vSphere and or the ESXi hosts. But if I want to put vSphere and the ESXi hosts into the dvSwitch and how do I do this? I might not be wording this question correctly, but one of the goals would be to have traffic separated by VLAN and protected by QOS where necessary. Is there documentation on how to do this correctly in a Nutanix environment? Has anyone tried to do this?
