Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) enables you to create layer 2 network over layer 3 networks. VXLAN is used to create logical network for the virtual machines.
To configure the VXLAN, Login to the Web Client -> Networking & Security -> Installation -> Host Preparation -> Not Configured -> Configure VXLAN.
Provide the necessary details
Switch: Select the Distributed Switch to which you need to attach the VXLAN VMkernel interface
VLAN: Mention the VLAN ID
MTU: Mention the appropriate MTU Size. The minimum value is 1600. Make sure the vDS is also set the same value
VMKNic IP Addressing: You can use DHCP or use the IP Address Pool.
VXLAN will be successfully configured.
Perform the same steps for the other cluster, if needed.
You can view the VXLAN VMkernel interface on the ESXi.
You can also see the interfaces in the VXLAN Transport.
