What is the alternativ to avoid L2-channel errors when using sub-interfaces?

  • 1.  What is the alternativ to avoid L2-channel errors when using sub-interfaces?

    Posted 03-22-2021 11:23
    Hi Experts,
    I'm using ESXI as hypervisor for my vSRX implementation.
    In the SRX I used a number of sub interfaces per  interface, so the incoming traffic is tagged.
    In ESXI  port groups with VLAN ID 4095 are configured  (so the traffic is tagged).
    These port groups are connected to an ESXI vswitch .
    The disadvantage of this setup is that SRX interfaces will get traffic with VLAN-ID belonging to another interfaces.
    So the L2 channel error counter will counts up.
    As far as I know, there is no way to specify certain VLANs in an ESXI port group.
    Unable to create its own SRX interface for each VLAN.
    Suggestions on how to get rid of L2 channel errors?
    Flexible-vlan-tagging instead of vlan-tagging?

    Thanks Kalle
