Problem in Fuel-OpenStack Switch Configurations

I am trying to deploy fuel OpenStack on physical servers. All the servers have 2 NICs. First interface of all the servers is connected to a single DEDICATED switch (for PXE communication). And all the second interfaces are connected to a switch having public Internet access. One of them is a fuel master node. But after the installation of master node, Slave nodes are not discovered in web UI. I know there is some network mis-configurations in the DEDICATED switch.

My question is: what should be the network configurations for this DEDICATED switch for all nodes to get discovered and network verification test to be passed eventually. Since, I am not a domain expert so I am expecting some clarification about vlan and tagging. And what commands should I be executing on the switch (assuming it has no settings enabled at all).

Here the official documentation. Please remember that Admin (PXE) network must always be untagged, even when it is combined with other networks on the same network interface.

Is it possible to have multiple vlans for a single interface?

Yes! e.g. having eth0.300 and eth0.301 means that VLANs 300 and 301 are available on the same 'physical' interface eth0
