Refer to Appendix D: VxRail network configuration for guidance on all the settings that must be collected to perform VxRail cluster automated initial build.
- By default, the external VxRail management network is the native VLAN. Since the typical Cloud Foundation on VxRail deployment has more than one VxRail cluster per rack, it is advisable to select a value other than the native VLAN.
- By default, the internal VxRail management network is 3939. Since the typical Cloud Foundation on VxRail deployment has more than one VxRail cluster per leaf switch pair, it is possible that an existing VxRail Manager will detect the new powered-on nodes in the rack. It is possible to bypass this discovery process so that the new nodes can be formed into a new cluster. If this is not desirable, a new VLAN can be set for the second and subsequent VxRail clusters. Dell Technologies will change the internal management VLAN on each VxRail node to the recorded value before cluster formation.
- The vSAN and vMotion VLANs should be unique for each VxRail cluster. Using a unique VLAN for vSAN and vMotion removes the possibility of conflicts when multiple VxRail clusters are sharing a set of switches.
