This is an IBM Automation portal for Cloud Management and AIOps products. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.

Fully agree with this, both as a customer over 8 years ago setting up superclusters on VDI at Aetna and having seen this across multiple customers. Regardless of whether the VLAN TAG mis-matches intentionally or due to configuration typo the backing VLAN is what's actually important to understand in terms of where a VM can live. This leads down the path of reconfiguring the VLAN on a VM during a move and whatever nuance comes with that but is also a large differentiator in terms of understanding a datacenter and managing workloads.
Also agree here, our naming across clusters is generally based on Distributed Switch per cluster, not per multiple clusters, while backing vlan stay the same names often differ. Additionally, we have started to see much more pvlan configurations on newer vsphere deployments.
This has come up in the past and one broad solution would be to allow the merging of networks within our platform. Since naming is often arbitrary, allowing our clients to merge networks in policy gives them the ability to define what networks are related.
