HP Virtual Connect Private VLAN Integration with Cisco and VMware PVLAN

From time to time, customers will want to configure Virtual Connect PVLAN in order to work with their Cisco or VMware environment.

Virtual Connect has a checkbox for private network when you configure a “vnet” (internal vlan). However, it’s not the same thing as the PVLAN you find in Cisco Catalyst, Nexus switches or VMware VDS. I developed this deck some time ago to help to clarify some confusions, feel free to download here.


I also created Youtube video demos to show some lab captures when I tested the configuration.
