i would be considering a different switch if i hadnt just bought the 5ks last year. id ask if anyones interested in buying some second hand n5ks but this isnt the right mailing list for that.

my understanding is that PVLANs are about creating relationships between physical ports, right? i want to build relationships between virtual interfaces on vms. i only ever skim the doco on those so i could be wrong.

i think i'll byte the bullet and ask the central guys for a chunk of vlan tags i can use as i see fit within my space. either that or hack svlan support into my hypervisor.
