Can't get trunk port to work between esxi 6 and cisco

Connectivity is fine when port is in access mode on cisco switchport. When I configure trunking, it dies. I am following these steps...

Sample configuration of virtual switch VLAN tagging (VST Mode) (1004074) | VMware KB

Anyone have any idea what I could be doing wrong... http://i.imgur.com/bkmOwQ5.jpg

Thanks!

With trunk ports on the Cisco switch, you need to set the appropriate VLAN ID (e.g. 25, or 26) for each of the port groups (unless you are using virtual guest tagging), except for port groups which access to the default VLAN (1). If you only have a single NIC you may need to set the Management port group's VLAN ID from the DCUI.

Btw "no cdp enable" is not required anymore.
