    How do we get ESXi VM server instances and PCs connected to the EHWIC-D-8ESG-P communicating at layer2?

    Hi Steven,



    Since you are configuring mgf and vlans you are using layer two.   Other than the basic configuration that you are doing for the service module/hypervisor on the router you should not need to enter any additional IOS commands.   As you know the PC will be plugged into the EHWIC switch.



    Thanks,

    We were able to get all desired interfaces function at layer2 using the following commands:
     
    interface GigabitEthernet0/0
     no ip address
     duplex auto
     speed auto
    !
    interface GigabitEthernet0/0.21
     description PrimaryLAN
     encapsulation dot1Q 21
     bridge-group 21
    !
    interface GigabitEthernet0/3/0
     switchport access vlan 21
    !
    interface GigabitEthernet0/3/1
     switchport access vlan 21
    !
    interface GigabitEthernet0/3/2
     switchport access vlan 21
    !
    interface GigabitEthernet0/3/3

    The desired VMServer instance as the vswitch set as:
    SRETest2# sh hypervisor vswitch
    Switch Name      Num Ports   Used Ports  Configured Ports  MTU     Uplinks  
    vSwitch0         128         4           128               1500    vmnic2
