Network/VLAN Configuration PBS

You can create a bridge with the name vmbr99, with ports /slave your network with the vlan : for example eth0.99


you can create a bridge with vlanware activated with the name vmbr0

after this you can create a bridge over the previous bridge , for exemple vmbr99, with ports slave vmbr0.99

exemple :

auto bond1
iface bond1 inet manual
        bond-slaves eth2 eth3
        bond-miimon 100
        bond-mode balance-rr

auto vmbr1
iface vmbr1 inet static
        bridge-ports eth1 vmbr9999.1
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr2
iface vmbr2 inet manual
        bridge-ports vmbr9999.2
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr3
iface vmbr3 inet static
        bridge-ports vmbr9999.3
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr4
iface vmbr4 inet manual
        bridge-ports vmbr9999.4
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr5
iface vmbr5 inet static
        bridge-ports vmbr9999.5
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr10
iface vmbr10 inet manual
        bridge-ports vmbr9999.10
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0

auto vmbr9999
iface vmbr9999 inet manual
        bridge-ports bond1
        bridge-stp off
        bridge-fd 0
        bridge-vlan-aware yes
        bridge-vids 2-4094

Thanks for that quick help.

The first variant (Linux bridge with port/slave ethX.Y) worked.

The second variant did not work even tough I did enable VLAN awareness on the "parent" vmbr.
But we also currently don't have a bond (compared to your example config).
