About tagged Ethernet networks

A tagged network uses virtual LANs (VLANs), allowing multiple networks to use the same physical connections. By sharing physical uplinks, you can separate traffic streams from different servers using the same set of uplinks.

Tagged Ethernet networks that are connected to enclosure interconnects require a VLAN ID.

  • You can add multiple Ethernet networks that use the same VLAN ID. This capability is required for logical interconnects that use an active/active configuration


  • Each network name in the appliance must be unique.

Tagged Ethernet networks and network sets

You can assign multiple tagged Ethernet networks to a named group called a network set. Later, when you add a connection in a server profile, you can select this network set to enable multiple networks to be selected for that single connection. Any change made to a network set is applied to all server profiles using the network set.
