Continuing from my previous post with the theme of network flexibility that is present in the 7.0.130 VxRail release. This post will look at a new feature that will allow customers to customize their entire vDS configuration. Traditionally all VxRail system VLANs needed to remain on a single vDS. System VLANs are categorized as Management, vMotion, vSan and VxRail Management the latter being used for used for loudmouth/auto-discovery. With 7.0.130 system VLANs can be assigned to dedicated vDS’s. For Example on certain occasions for security purposes, customers might need to isolated MGMT based traffic on one vDS and put vSAN and vMotion on another.
