what is the nic teaming policy of the portgroup to which VM's are connected? thanks
Could you not just set the Nortel switches up to trunk the ports for the NICs and handle the NIC teaming through your ESX host settings?
That's the way I'd go . . gives me control . . rather than the networks guys
The NIC Teaming was set to route based on IP hash. To get around the problem we have gone back to using route based on originating virtual port id and turning back spanning tree back and not using 802.3ad. This is working for us, but is not our preference.
