Hi,

I'm using the vmware overlay to install vmware-server2 beta. The modules and server install fine and the installation script runs without errors. The problem I'm having is that the vmnet modules do not want to bridge against my VLAN interfaces.

Here's what /var/log/messages shows:

Code:

bridge-vlan10: enabling the bridge
bridge-vlan10: can't bridge with vlan10, bad header length 18
bridge-vlan10: interface vlan10 is not a valid Ethernet interface
bridge-vlan10: can't bridge with vlan10, bad header length 18


The above message repeats for the other three vlans I'm trying to bridge.

Code:

daffy eldon # cat /proc/net/vlan/config
VLAN Dev name    | VLAN ID
Name-Type: VLAN_NAME_TYPE_PLUS_VID_NO_PAD
vlan10         | 10  | eth0
vlan11         | 11  | eth0
vlan12         | 12  | eth0
vlan20         | 20  | eth0


I've tried settings REORDER_HDR to on or off with no differences:
Code:

daffy eldon # cat /proc/net/vlan/vlan10
vlan10  VID: 10  REORDER_HDR: 1  dev->priv_flags: 1
         total frames received          686
          total bytes received        98637
      Broadcast/Multicast Rcvd           16

      total frames transmitted         1154
       total bytes transmitted       181179
            total headroom inc            0
           total encap on xmit         1154
Device: eth0
INGRESS priority mappings: 0:0  1:0  2:0  3:0  4:0  5:0  6:0 7:0
EGRESSS priority Mappings:


I should note that this server has been running for over a year with these vlans configured and is routing properly. It is just recently that I decided to add vmware-server.
