Section 2.2 - Configure and Manage Layer 2 bridging

If a VM using a logical switch needs to use a resource in the same IP Space a Layer 2 Bridge between the vxLAN and a Portgroup may be created.

To create a bridge you need to have the destsination VLAN added to a switch on the ESX cluster and the proper VLAN tagged to it.  The VLAN also needs to be on the physical trunk ports.

Bridging is done from the LDR(DRL)


1. Select your DLR Click on the Manage TAB.  Choose the Bridging sub menu


2. Name the Bridge.  Select the Logical switch and Port Group.  Click ok


3. Publish the change and the bridge will start working
