Esteemed members,

I was wondering why can't I use "bridge-vids 1-4094" instead of default "bridge-vids 2-4094" when vlan aware option is enabled on network bridge in network options.

My use case is that my cluster communication is running untagged on same interface but I also want to provide IPs to VM by tagging there network card with tag1.
generall, it is not recommended to use VLAN 1 because it is the default one.
It can make problems, not all SW/HW support the use of VLAN1.
Anyway you can do this if you set
"bridge-pvid 1"
