    VLAN Trunking on the VSwitch for LDOM

    871253
      Hi Folks,

      Anyone has a best practice example for LDOM on T3/4 servers when you have multiple LDOMs running Oracle RAC and the vSwitch have multiple VLAN trunked on them?

      Scenario: Two T4-4 -> 5 two node 11g RAC cluster -> 5 Ldoms per server -> 2 10g links aggregated with 5 (data) + 5 (heartbeat) VLAN trunked on the vSwitch per server. Question: best practice for vSwitch configuration for all these VLANs. I searched google but all the documents points to one 1g links per cluster/per vSwitch but that beats the whole point of visualization because you will need 20 1g cables and 20 switch ports times 2 for redundancy. So using 10g links makes logical sense for this type of config.
      I did this for two of the LDOMs (one/server) for one RAC cluster:
      ldm add-vswitch vid=1501,1601,10,11 net-dev=aggr1 primary-vsw0 primary
      ldm add-vnet pvid=1501 vnetprod primary-vsw0 oidrac2
      ldm add-vnet pvid=10 vnethb primary-vsw0 oidrac2

      ldm add-vswitch vid=1501,1601,10,11 net-dev=aggr1 primary-vsw0 primary
      ldm add-vnet pvid=1501 vnetprod primary-vsw0 oidrac1
      ldm add-vnet pvid=10 vnethb primary-vsw0 oidrac1

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
