Ethernet Tag Header Format
By default, a single VLAN is configured for every port. This groups all ports into the
same broadcast domain, just as if there were no VLANs at all, VLAN tagging for the
switch port is turned off.
If you configure a VLAN virtual device for an adapter, all traffic sent or
received by that adapter must be in VLAN-tagged format.
▼ To Configure Static VLANs
1. Create one hostname.nxge
number file for each VLAN that will be configured
for each adapter on the server.
Use the following naming format, which includes both the VID and the physical
point of attachment (PPA):
VLAN logical PPA = 1000 * VID + Device PPA
nxge123000 = 1000*123 + nxge
This format limits the maximum number of PPAs (instances) you can configure to
1000 in the /etc/path_to_inst file.
For example, on a server with the Sun x8 Express Dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet Fiber
XFP Low Profile Adapter having an instance of 0, belonging to a member of two
VLANs, with VID 123 and 224, you would use nxge123000 and nxge224000,
respectively, as the two VLAN PPAs.
