The PVLAN configuration specification.

A VMwareDVSPvlanMapEntry that has the same value for primaryVlanId and secondaryVlanId is referred to as a primary PVLAN entry. Otherwise, the VMwareDVSPvlanMapEntry is referred to as a secondary PVLAN entry.

The pvlanType of a primary PVLAN entry must be promiscuous. A secondary PVLAN entry can have a pvlanType of either community or isolated.

Primary PVLAN entries must be explicitly added. If there is no primary PVLAN entry corresponding to the primaryVlanId of a secondary PVLAN entry, a fault is thrown.

While deleting a primary PVLAN entry, any associated secondary PVLAN entries must be explicitly deleted.


The Distributed Port Mirroring configuration specification. The VSPAN sessions in the array cannot be of the same key.
